ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; Indianapolis International Airport, Indianapolis, Indiana.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change 76.592 acres of airport land from the federal obligation dedicating it to aeronautical use and to authorize this land to be used for revenue producing, non-aeronautical purposes at Indianapolis International Airport, Indianapolis, Indiana. The aforementioned land is not needed for current or future aeronautical use.Start Printed Page 55525

The land is located along the southern boundary of the airport, bordered by Col. H. Weir Cook Memorial Drive; West Perimeter Road; Haueisen Road; and Bridgeport Road. The land is not developed. A solar power generating facility is proposed for development on the land.

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 vacant property consists of portions of 15 original airport acquired parcels. These parcels were acquired with a combination of Airport Development Aid Program (ADAP) grants 6-18-0038-04, 6-18-0038-10, 6-18-0038-14, and local funds. The land is located outside the airport operations area and is restricted from airside development. Development of the parcel for landside operations is restricted due to maximum height limitations and access limitations. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the Indianapolis Airport Authority to lease the property for solar energy generation.

The Indianapolis Airport Authority will control use of the parcel through 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 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).

A fair market value (FMV) appraisal for the parcel was completed in June 2014 in accordance with FAA Order 5100.37A. The appraisal concluded that the FMV for an annual commercial ground lease of the property is $871.20 per acre.

This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at the Indianapolis International Airport, Indianapolis, Indiana 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.
