Request for Public Comments.


The FAA is requesting public comment on the Town of Barnstable, MA request to change a portion (6.94 acres) of Airport property from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use. The property is located behind the Airport's East Ramp and adjacent to the railroad right-of-way on land located on along the former Mary Dunn Way. The land is currently a land locked vacant parcel. The parcel will be leased to the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority (“Authority”) for use as a parking area during the months of July and August. During the remainder of the year, both the Authority and Airport will use the lot for overflow parking. The property was acquired under the Surplus Property Act and Airport Development Aid Projects 6-25-0025-07 and 6-25-0025-10. These lease term is for five years with three additional five-year terms. Should the land be required for airport purposes, the lease can be terminated at any time upon six month written notice to the Authority.

The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of 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.
