Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of the airport property. The proposal consists of the sale of vacant, unimproved land owned by the Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA).

The WCAA has requested from FAA a “Release from Federal agreement obligated land covenants” to sell portions of six (6) parcels. The property proposed for release was acquired by the WCAA and FAA Project Numbers: 3-26-0026-1991, 3-26-0026-2292, 3-26-0026-3695, 3-0026-4197, and 3-26-0026-4398.

There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the WCAA to dispose of the vacant property. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the 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 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.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before September 20, 2006.
