The City of Delano, California requested a release from the conditions contained in the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Assurance obligations for approximately 9.89 acres of airport land. The property is located on the west and north sides of the airport in the vicinity of Lexington Street. A City public works facility occupies 7.8 acres, while 2.09 acres serve as part of the city golf course. The land has not served an airport purpose and will not be needed for future airport purposes.
