ACTION:

Notice of intent for waiver of aeronautical land-use.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to nonaeronautical use and to authorize the conversion of the airport property. The proposal consists of two parcels of land containing a total of approximately 120.46 acres located to the northeast and southeast of the intersection of East 36th Street North and North Mingo Road.

These parcels were originally acquired under the following grants: Airport Development Aid Program (ADAP) No. 6-40-0099-15 in 1978; Federal Aid to Airports Program (FAAP) Nos. 9-34-032-C312 in 1962 and 9-34-032-C514 in 1964; portions of these parcels were acquired with non-grant funds. The land comprising these parcels is outside the forecasted need for aviation development and, thus, is no longer needed for indirect or direct aeronautical use. In addition, these parcels have no access to the airfield. The Airport wishes to develop this land for compatible commercial, nonaeronautical use. The income from the conversion of these parcels will benefit the aviation community by reinvestment in the airport.

Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the conversion of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the conversion 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.
