Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; DuPage Airport, West Chicago, Illinois.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 1.771-acre portion Start Printed Page 79060of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at DuPage Airport, West Chicago, Illinois.

The subject portion of airport property considered for release from obligation to be maintained for aeronautical use and sale includes a 0.677-acre portion of Parcel 601 (83.62 total acres), a 0.298-acre portion of Parcel 8 (1.21 total acres), and a 0.795-acre portion of Tract A (136.95 total acres) that are located in the northeast quadrant of the airport along Illinois Route 64 (North Avenue) 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 64 which is directly adjacent to the airport. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before January 27, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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.

The acquisition of Parcel 601 was originally funded under Federal ADAP Grant 8-17-0017-01 in June, 1972, with Parcel 8 acquisition funded with local funds. Tract A was acquired via a Quitclaim Deed from the US Government and Reconstruction Finance Corporation (War Assets Administration) in December, 1947. The subject portions of those parcels are currently used for FAR Part 77 protection and to ensure compatible land use. The DuPage Airport Authority plans to sell the subject property to the Illinois Department of Transportation—Division of Highways for the purpose of improvements to be made on Illinois Route 64 (North Avenue) adjacent to the airport. Fair Market Value will be obtained from the sale of the subject property.

This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at DuPage Airport, West Chicago, Illinois, from Federal land covenants, subject to a reservation for continuing right of flight as well as restrictions on the released property as required in FAA Order 5190.6B Section 22.16. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The use of the revenue generated from the sale of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999 (64 FR 7696).
