Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.


Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the disposal of the airport property. The proposal consists of a 1.61-acre portion of Parcel 5 located east of Minnesota Trunk Highways 29 and 27. Parcel 5 was acquired in 1980 without Federal participation. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The land is to be used for right-of-way for relocated 34th Avenue. The intersection of Minnesota Trunk Highways 29 and 27 was relocated southward years ago to provide additional clearance to the runway end. The relocation of the 34th Avenue intersection increases traffic safety. 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.


Comments must be received on or before October 25, 2004.
