Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the release of 0.101 acres of the airport property at the Start Printed Page 36955Shell Lake Municipal Airport, Shell Lake, WI.

A recently-completed boundary survey of the airport found that a privately-owned structure encroaches onto land owned by the airport. This finding has resulted in a proposal to transfer the affected parcel of airport land to the neighboring owner in exchange for that owner transferring a parcel of its own land to the airport. Release of the 0.101 acre parcel from land assurances would allow the encroaching structure to remain standing. The parcel to be acquired by the airport in the land exchange (0.021 acres) would give the airport ownership of a key parcel of land located within the 14 CFR part 77-defined, primary surface of Runway 14/32.

A categorical exclusion for this land release action was prepared by Wisconsin Dept. of Transportation-Bureau of Aeronautics and issued on February 28, 2011.

The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use, as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property.

The parcel to be released was originally acquired with local funds in 1961. To compensate for the uneven exchange of land area (0.101 acres to be released by the airport vs. 0.021 acres to be acquired by the airport), the airport will receive $1,000 in additional compensation to be used at the airport for maintenance and/or improvement purposes.

In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before July 25, 2011.
