SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport under the provisions of the AIR 21.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

As airport owner, the city of Hammond has requested to release a parcel comprised of 17.01 acres that was acquired under the 1945 acquisition of property with aeronautical rights attached. The release of property will not adversely affect the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport because the parcel is located immediately east of the airport on the on Industrial Park Road. The parcel is separated from the airport by Industrial Park Road. This property was part of the Runway Protection Zone for Runway 22 which is no longer in use and can never be used for airport purposes. The sale is estimated to provide $545,000.00 to be used for construction of a new control tower at the airport. In the event that the proposed control tower project is not funded, the city of Hammond has provided written concent that the proceeds of this land release will be used for other needed airport improvements at the Hammond Northshore Regional 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 Hammond Northshore Regional Airport.
