SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 235 acres of property known as the Air Park South Airport (2K2) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On September 25, 2007, the Director of Aviation at the Springfield-Branson National Airport notified the FAA that because of the Sponsor's inability to acquire land necessary to safely and effectively operate the airport, he requested full release of the affected property from Federal obligations. On March 16, 2010, the FAA determined that the request to release property at Air Park South Airport (2K2) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this Notice.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

Air Park South Airport (2K2) is proposing the release of the entire airport property and associated facilities. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow Federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale and permanent abandonment of the subject property will result in the lands of the Air Park South Airport (2K2) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the AlP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation facilities at the Springfield-Branson National Airport.

Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the Start Printed Page 55402application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at the Springfield-Branson National Airport.
