SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport under the provisions of the AIR 21 (49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2)).

On December 30, 2014, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport submitted by Jefferson County meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than April 6, 2015.

The following is a brief overview of the request: Jefferson County is proposing the release from the terms, conditions, reservations, and restrictions on a 449 acre parcel of property acquired by Jefferson County on June 2, 1959. This property was transferred to the Jefferson County Airport Authority in April of 1966. With the dissolution of the Airport Authority in 1998, this property ownership was then transferred back to Jefferson County, as the airport sponsor, January 11, 1999. Elevation constraints of this parcel compared to the Runway environment makes it unusable for airport development. The property is currently undeveloped vacant land. The expected future use of the property is for non-aviation development associated with the Verve Innovation Park, as well Start Printed Page 12261as the realignment of Simms Street to allow for more aviation development to the east. The proceeds for the disposal of the property will be at fair market value and the sponsor will utilize the revenue to reinvest into future airport development.

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

In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the application, notice and other documents germane to the application in person at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport.
