The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 3.03-acre portion of Parcel AA of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use (for lease), located at Quad City International Airport, Moline, Illinois.

The subject 3.03-acre portion of Parcel AA (10.84 total acres) is located in the north quadrant of the airport along Airport Drive and currently not being used directly for aeronautical purposes other than for the protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use.

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.

Existing Parcel AA was originally acquired under FAAP Grant 9-11-024-C309 in June, 1962, with the subject portion of Parcel AA currently used for FAR Part 77 protection and to ensure compatible land use. The Metropolitan Airport Authority plans to allow the construction of a hotel on the subject property. Fair Market Value will be obtained from a long term lease with hotel owner.

This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at the Quad City International Airport, Moline, Illinois from its obligations to be maintained for aeronautical purposes.
