Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change 1.07 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois.

The property is located at the southeast corner of Berteau Avenue and George Street in Schiller Park, Illinois, and is currently vacant. There have been no federal investments in the parcel. The parcel is not needed for aeronautical purposes due to its remote location relative to the airfield. The proposed non aeronautical use of the property (to become effective after the sale to the Village of Schiller Park) is to be incorporated into a joint storm water detention/compensatory storage facility. The City of Chicago (City) will reserve an easement in the property for compensatory storage of storm water.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before October 28, 2013.
