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 lease of the airport property. The proposal consists of 1 parcel of land, totaling approximately 37 acres. Current use and present condition is undeveloped land compatible with local commercial/industrial zoning classification. The land was acquired under part of the property from the City of Escanaba deeded to Delta County for airport use. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to lease of the property. Subject land may provide good commercial/industrial development opportunities for the community and are well outside airport perimeter fence limits. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the lease of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the lease of the airport property will be in accordance FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999.

In accordance with section 34107(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 November 25, 2005.
