Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Request for public comments.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale and/or conversion of airport property. The proposal consists of converting 4.1 acres of an 8.5 acre parcel to non-aeronautical use.

This 8.5 acre residential property was acquired under grant 3-23-0002-019-2010 for airport development purposes and to ensure compatible land-use. The portion of the property to be designated as non-aeronautical use will likely be leased as aviation compatible light industrial, retail, or mixed use development. The remaining 4.4 acres will remain aeronautical use and be used for airport development. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the change in use of the parcel in question as it is not needed for aeronautical purposes.

Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. 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 January 3, 2012.
