The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at Newport Municipal Airport under the provisions of the AIR 21.

On April 13, 2004, the FAA determined that the request to release property at Newport Municipal Airport submitted by the City of Newport met the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Regulations, Part 155. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than May 13, 2004.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

The City of Newport requests the release of 31.42 acres of non-aeronautical airport property. The land is part of a War Assets Administration Quitclaim Deed dated December 17, 1947 conveying certain lands comprising the Newport Municipal Airport to the City of Newport. The release of property will allow funding for maintenance, operation, and development of the airport.

The sale is estimated to provide $50,700 to be deposited in an interest-bearing account and will be expended on airport maintenance, operation, and development.
