Notice of Request to Release Airport Land.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 1,727 square feet of airport property at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway, Mesa, Arizona, from all conditions contained in the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Assurances since the parcel of land is not needed for airport purposes. The property will be sold for its fair market value and the proceeds deposited in the airport account. The reuse of the land for a roadway improvement project by the State of Arizona represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation.

The following is a brief overview of the request:
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Authority, Mesa, Arizona requested a release from the conditions contained in the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Assurance obligations for approximately 1,727 square feet of airport land. The property is located on the east side of the airport in the vicinity of Ellsworth Road. The land is presently unused and undeveloped. The land is needed for the construction of State Route 24, Gateway Freeway, which will encroach into airport property. The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority has agreed to the sale of the small parcel to the State of Arizona since the property is not needed for airport purposes. The conveyance will not impede future development of the airport, while SR-24 will improve access to the east side of the airport. The sale price will be based on its appraised market value and the sale proceeds will be deposited in the airport account and used for airport purposes. The use of the property as a public roadway represents a compatible use that will not interfere with airport operations. The airport will be properly compensated, thereby serving the interests of civil aviation.Start Signature
