SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA is reviewing a request by the City of Thomasville to release 10.5 acres located at Thomasville Municipal Airport on the south side of Lawhorn Road west of its intersection with Centennial Road in Lot 218 on the 13th Land District of Thomas County, Georgia. Property is currently shown on the approved Airport Layout Plan as aeronautical land; however the property is currently not being used for aeronautical purposes and will not have an impact to aviation related work. Thomas County will continue to retain the property for use by the County Oaks Public Golf Course. The avigation easement will continue to be in effect for the Thomasville Municipal Airport. Property was acquired through the Thomasville Army Training Air Base and released by the Department of Defense in 1970. This surplus property is owned by the City of Thomasville and Thomas County. Sponsor's proposed sale of property is for the reorientation of the driving range of the County Oaks Public Golf Course away from its current location paralleled to Route 122. The disposition of the sale profit will enter into the Thomasville Municipal Airport Enterprise Fund at fair market value $2000 per acre. (Almand & Company Appraisal Consultants, Valdosta, GA.)

Documents reflecting the Sponsor's request are available for inspection at the Airport Manager's office and the FAA Airport District Office.
