Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; Morris Municipal Airport, Morris, Illinois.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 0.747-acre portion of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at Morris Municipal Airport, Morris, Illinois.

The subject portion of airport property considered for release from obligation to be maintained for aeronautical use and sale includes a 0.346-acre portion of Parcel G (110.55 total acres) and 0.401-acre portion of Parcel C2 (73.27 total acres) that are located in the west quadrant of the airport along Illinois Route 47 and currently not being used directly for aeronautical purposes. Currently, ownership of the property provides for protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the transfer of land ownership. The change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use would allow for the widening of Route 47 which is directly adjacent to the airport. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before July 25, 2013.
