AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance with respect to land; Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 29.8 acre parcel of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize this parcel to be leased for revenue-producing, non-aeronautical purposes at Start Printed Page 24059Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.

The parcel is located on the north side of Bridgeway Avenue, between Goshen Lane and James Road. The majority of the parcel is a mowed field.

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 parcel is depicted on the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) dated November 17, 2011, and the Exhibit “A” property map. The parcel was acquired through multiple Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grants: 3-39-0025-01, 3-39-0025-02 and 06-39-0025-04.

No airport landside or airside facilities are presently located on this parcel nor is airport development contemplated in the future. Development of the parcel for airside or landside operations is largely restricted due to the parcel being separated from the airfield by Bridgeway Avenue. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing it to waive the requirement to maintain the parcel for aeronautical use.

The sponsor will control use of the parcel through the terms and conditions of the ground lease. The lease will be subordinate to the sponsor's existing grant assurances. This will ensure that all activities contemplated on the parcel will be compatible with FAA requirements and airport operations.

The disposition of proceeds from the lease 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).

This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at the Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio from its obligations to be maintained for aeronautical purposes. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the change in use of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.
