The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport under the provisions of the AIR 21.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

The City of Austin requests the release of 0.60 acre tract (26,149 SF) of non-aeronautical airport property. In 1942, the City of Austin donated land to the United States government for a military installation (Bergstrom Air Force Base), with the stipulation that the land would revert back to the City of Austin when the government no longer needed it. The Air Force Base was officially closed on September 30, 1996. On July 27, 2001, the United States of America/Secretary of the Air Force conveyed 1989.252 acres back to the City of Austin as a result of the base closure. The 0.60 acre (26,149 SF) tract is a part of the larger 1989.252 acre tract. The property to be released will be sold to allow for highway improvements along State Highway 71.

Any person may inspect the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the application, notice and other documents relevant to the application in person at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, telephone number (512) 530-5562.
