SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the airport sponsor's request to release property at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport.

On February 4, 2009 the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport submitted by the City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge met the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation regulations, Part 155. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than March 31, 2009.

The City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge requests the release of ± 1.115 acres (48,569 square feet) of airport property. The release of this airport property along the existing Harding Boulevard will allow for the sale of a portion of said site, also known as Lot #22, to proceed. The sale is estimated to provide $486,000.00 to the City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge that will allow the City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge to market subject property for highest and best use, which is deemed to be commercial development. The proceeds obtained from the sale of the land to the highest bidder will be used in the operation and maintenance of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan 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 application, notice and other documents germane to the application in person at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport.
