SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 11.38 acres of airport property at the Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport (LBL) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2).

On May 26, 2015, the FAA Start Printed Page 31635determined that the request to release property at Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport (LBL) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport (LBL) is proposing the release of a parcel, totaling 11.38 acres. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject property will result in the surface lands being released at the Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport (LBL), from the conditions of the AIP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances, but retaining any mineral rights. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, from the City of Liberal and will be subsequently sold to Wal-Mart.

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