The FAA is reviewing a request by the City of Douglas to release approximately .76 acres of surplus property at the Douglas Municipal Airport. The property consists of one parcel located adjacent to and west of U.S. Highway #441 right of way, and approximately 1250 feet south of Georgia State Road #353 right of way. 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 will ultimately sell the property to the Douglas Coffee County Industrial Authority who will participate in putting a purchase package together to sell both the land owned by the city and the structure owned by an individual, with proceeds of the sale providing funding for future airport development.

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 Douglas Municipal Airport.
