On March 9, 1949, the U.S. government, through the Federal Farm Mortgage Corporation, conveyed the Santa Isabel Auxiliary Air Field to the Puerto Rico Transportation Authority through a deed of sale. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) issued a conditional release of nearly all Federal obligations, reservations and restrictions contained in the 1949 deed on June 28, 1957. This release retained the U.S. government's rights and interests with respect to any uranium, thorium, and fissionable materials and was subject to specific terms and conditions. On November 26, 2008, the Puerto Rico Ports Authority (PRPA) notified FAA of its plans to close Santa Isabel Airport per the terms and conditions contained in the 1957 release. PRPA plans to sell Santa Isabel Airport and all proceeds derived from any sale, lease or rental of any of the property included in the release will be used exclusively for the improvement or development of a public airport in accordance with the June 28, 1957 release letter. In addition to this notice, the PRPA intends to utilize electronic media to advertise the sale of the property.

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