The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 2.7 acres of airport property at The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On January 17, 2013, the Airport Director at The Eastern Iowa Airport requested from the FAA that approximately 2.7 acres of property be released for sale to the City of Cedar Rapids for use as street widening and improvements or other purposes consistent with the zoning ordinances of the City. On March 29, 2013, the FAA determined that the request to release property at The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice.
The following is a brief overview of the request:
The Eastern Iowa (CID) is proposing the release of airport property totaling 2.7 acres, more or less. This land is to be used for street widening and improvements. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject property will result in the land at The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) being changed from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation facilities at The Eastern Iowa Airport.
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 determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at The Eastern Iowa Airport.
