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 property is currently vacant and is not needed for current or future aeronautical purposes. Approximately 86.27 acres of the property was transferred to Alpena County under the provisions of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 and the Surplus Property Act of 1944. The remaining 39.85 acres was purchased by the County in 1987 with local funds. The airport intends to market this property for commercial non-aeronautical uses. Lease rates will be consistent with fair market value of the land.

The sponsor will control use of the parcel(s) through the terms and conditions of a ground lease(s). 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 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 Alpena County Regional Airport, Alpena, Michigan from its obligations to be maintained for aeronautical purposes. 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.
