SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport under the provisions of the AIR 21 (49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2)).

On January 15, 2013, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport submitted by Jefferson County meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than March 6, 2013.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

Jefferson County is proposing the release from the terms, conditions, reservations, and restrictions on a 120 acre parcel of acquired by Jefferson County on June 2, 1959. This property was transferred to the Jefferson County Airport Authority in April of 1966. With the dissolution of the Airport Authority in 1998, this property ownership was then transferred back to Jefferson County, as the airport sponsor, January 11, 1999. Elevation constraints of this parcel compared to the Runway environment makes it unusable for airport development. The property is currently being leased to the City of Westminster, and consists of the back nine holes of the Heritage Golf Course. The expected use of the property is to remain a golf course with the City of Westminster having ownership. The proceeds for the disposal of the property will be at fair market value and will be utilized to complete a much needed taxiway to enhance safety within the hangar area on the airfield. This proposed taxiway is identified on the current Airport Layout Plan.

Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the application, notice and other documents germane to the application in person at the St George Airport.
