Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.
Notice of request to release airport land.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 6.50 acres of airport property at the Oroville Municipal Airport (OVE), Oroville, California from all conditions contained in the Surplus Property Deed and Grant Assurances because the parcel of land is not needed for airport purposes. The land requested to be released is located outside of the airport fence along the southern boundary of the airport. The release will allow the City of Oroville (City) to sell the property at its fair market value, thereby benefiting the Airport and serving the interest of civil aviation. The City is also requesting a land-use change for approximately 13.62 acres of land adjacent to the 6.50 acres so it may be leased at its fair market value for non-aeronautical purposes to earn revenue for the airport. The proposed use will be compatible with the airport and will not interfere with the airport or its operation.
Comments must be received on or before May 20, 2013.
