Request for public comments.


The FAA is requesting public comment on the Town of Wiscasset, Maine's, request to change 1.38 acres of fee interest from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to abandon .15 acres of an easement. The property is located on Route 27 in Edgecomb, Maine (Map R2 Lot 12). The property was for a non-directional beacon the FAA has decommissioned. The Town proposes to lease or sell the 1.38 acres in fee.

Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21) requires the FAA to provide an opportunity for public notice and comment to the “waiver” or “modification” of a sponsor's Federal obligation to use certain airport property for aeronautical purposes.

The Town acquired the land FAA ADAP Project No. 7-27-0049-01.

The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999.
