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 airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the exchange of the property for land needed to protect the transitional surface of Runway 18/36. The proposal consists of a 2.1-acre portion of Parcel 1 in exchange for 9.6 acres of Parcel 3. Presently the 2.1 acres of Parcel 1 is located outside of the fenced in portion of airport property and any protected zone (runway protection zone, object free area, object free zone, etc.) This land is currently being used as residential and has a mobile home located on it. Parcel 1 was acquired in 1986 with Federal participation. It is the intent of the City of Beardstown, as owner and operator of the Greater Beardstown Airport (K06) to exchange the subject portion of Parcel 1 (2.1 Acres) to Ms. Hardwick, Beardstown, IL in exchange for 9.6 acres of land (portion of Parcel 3), which is in the side transition area of Runway 18/36. This notice announces that the FAA is considering the proposal to authorize the exchange of the subject airport property at the Greater Beardstown Airport, Beardstown, IL with a portion of Parcel 3 (9.6 acres). Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.

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 24, 2008.
