The FAA is reviewing a request by the City of Tifton and Tift County to release approximately 2 acres of surplus property at the Henry Tift Myers Airport. The property consists of one parcel located South of Tifton Eldorado Road (Formerly, Lower Brookfield Road), and to the West of Tri County Road. This property is currently shown on the approved Airport Layout Plan as aeronautical use land; however the property is currently not being used for aeronautical purposes and the proposed use of this property is compatible with airport operations. The City/County will ultimately use this land to acquire a 2.33 acre parcel located south of Washington Street, and East of Highway 41 South. The Washington Street property is located within the FAR Part 77 Primary and Transitional Approach Surfaces for a Precision Instrument Runway, and will be used to protect the approach surface to Runway 15.

Any person may inspect the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the request, notice and other documents germane to the request in person at the Henry Tift Myers Airport.
