Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Request for public comment.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public comment on the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) request to release a portion of airport property, ±4,314 square feet, for other than aeronautical purposes.

The Property Location

South of Tract 13 along the northern boundary of Opa-Locka Airport across the Biscayne Drainage Canal that parallel Runway 9L/27R. It is more specifically located on the west side of NW 4th Court approximately 350 feet south of NW 157th Street and 170 feet north of theoretical NW 155 Terrace.

The Property is part of Parcel 4 and is currently vacant. It was acquired by the MDAD with Federal participation under Federal aid projects (FAAP 9-08-054-D2014-D603) to satisfy airport development and runway protection requirements for current Runway 9L/27R.

The property will be disposed of for the purpose of selling it to the adjacent property owner who desires to increase his residential lot size.

The fair market value of the property has been determined by appraisal to be $17,000,00. The airport will receive fair market value for the property, and will subsequently reinvest it in an eligible airport improvement project at the Opa-Locka Airport and/or returned to the Trust fund.

Documents reflecting the Sponsor's request are available, by appointment only, for inspection of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD), Office of the Manager for Development and at the Orlando FAA Airports District Office.
