Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Request for public comment.


The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public comment on the proposed release of 46.53 acres of land currently owned by the City of Morgantown, Sponsor for the Morgantown Municipal Airport, Morgantown, West Virginia. The parcel is located within the Sixth Ward District of the City of Morgantown, Morgantown, West Virginia. The site is a 47.00 acre portion of the larger Morgantown Municipal Airport property. The land is currently being used as a cross wind runway. It has been determined that this runway is no longer needed for safety or capacity. The property is not a vital part of, or necessary for the Sponsor's operation and development of the Morgantown Airport. Once released, the land will change to a non-aeronautical use and will be transferred to the West Virginia Army National Guard (“AR-WVARNG”). Thereafter, AR-WVARNG will construct or cause the construction of and operate a West Virginia Army National Guard Readiness Center on the property. The development of this property will also bring the construction of a roadway and utilities that will be needed for subsequent development of aviation facilities on a part of the airport that is now remote and without utilities or access. The airport land being released is not needed for airport development as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Fair Market Value has been determined based upon an appraisal of the Property.


Comments must be received on or before November 15, 2010.


Comments on this application may be mailed or delivered in triplicate to the FAA at the following address: Connie Boley-Lilly, Program Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, Beckley Airports Field Office, 176 Airport Circle, Room 101, Beaver, West Virginia 25813.
