ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use at the Seymour (Freeman) Field Municipal Airport in Seymour, Indiana. The proposal consists of 871 acres located outside of the fenced in portion of airport property. This land is currently being farmed. The entire 871 acres is part of Quitclaim Deed from the United States Department of Defense in 1941. It is the intent of the Seymour Airport Authority, as owner and operator of Seymour (Freeman) Municipal Airport (SER) to lease or sell the entire 871 acres as an industrial park. This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at Seymour (Freeman) Municipal Airport, from all federal land covenants. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.

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.
