Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the sale of a portion of the airport property. Land to be sold comprises 26.67 acres located in the west-northwest portion of the airport. This acreage is not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan.

The acreage comprising this parcel was originally acquired under Grant No. FAAP-9-47-022-6202, and AIP 3-55-SBGP-05-96 (Superior 03). The intended use of the property is for construction of a middle school by the School District of Superior (Wisconsin). An environmental assessment was prepared to address construction of the middle school on this acreage, and a Finding of No Significant Impact was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration in March 2001. The City of Superior (Wisconsin), as airport owner, has concluded that the subject airport land is not needed for expansion of airport facilities. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The airport owner wishes to transfer ownership of the land to support construction of the middle school. Revenues received from sale of the property will be applied toward capital improvement projects at the airport in accordance with the Airport Capital Improvement Plan. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999.

In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before March 8, 2004.
