Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.
Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is giving notice that a portion of the airport property will be exchanged with the Southern Illinois University. A portion of the property to be exchanged (.0254 acre) was originally acquired in fee on July 20, 1948, with partial Federal funding. The remaining property (.7266 acre was acquired by Southern Illinois Airport Authority (SIAA) on August 16, 2001, in a previous exchange with the Southern Illinois University (SIU). This release will be an even exchange of land (.752+/-acre) between SIAA and SIU. The Exhibit ‘A’ Property Line Map (Exhibit 1) and the Airport Layout Plan (Exhibit 2) depicts the exchange.
The University proposes to construct four (4) buildings which will result in the new Transportation Education Center at the airport. The sponsor anticipates greater future opportunities for the airport due to the reputation of the University and its renowned programs. It has been determined that one of the buildings will cause a line-of-site obstruction with the Air Traffic Control Tower if it is built in its proposed location. In order to eliminate the conflict, an even exchange of the property and a different construction location has been proposed.
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 that property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
