The following is a brief overview of the request:
The City of Nenana, Alaska requested a release from surplus property agreement obligations, described in a Quit Claim Deed executed by the General Services Administration (GSA), recorded in Book Volume III Page 210 Nenana Recording District for approximately 15.61 acres of airport land. The property is only a portion of the Surplus Property granted and located on the North boundary of the airport. The land is presently unused, unimproved, and does not generate any income. Due to its location, the property cannot be used for airport purposes nor has it generated revenue for the airport. The release will allow the land to be sold to the Alaska Rail Road Corporation, Alaska to realign a section of railroad track that passes through the community of Nenana, Alaska. The property will be sold at the appraised market value and the sale proceeds will be used to pay off legal fees incurred in the latest airport improvement and development project. Reuse of the property to straighten tracks will be compatible with the airport and the reuse of the sale proceeds will benefit the airport, thereby serving the interests of civil aviation.Start Signature
