The Greenwood-Leflore Airport in Greenwood, Mississippi, is considering a proposal for the expansion of the lease area of a commercial tenant presently located on the airport. The lease area of this tenant will increase from 12.82 acres to 28.71 acres. The business operation of this aeronautical tenant necessarily includes a non-aeronautical component. Of this 28.71 acres proposed for lease, 7.50 acres of paved apron and adjacent unpaved areas will be changed to non-aeronautical use. The Airport has already partially offset the loss of this pavement by the recent construction of a new general aviation (GA) apron. This proposal will require the displacement of one aeronautical user. The Airport has provided an offer to this aeronautical user for the purchase of his facilities. Additional ramp area and space for hangar construction is available on the new GA apron. The increased revenue generated by the proposed lease expansion will be used for operations and maintenance and capital improvements on the Airport.

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 offices of the Greenwood-Leflore Airport, Greenwood, Mississippi.
