The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport under the provisions of Section 47125(a) of Title 49 U.S.C. On July 7, 2015, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport (LBE), PA, submitted by the Westmoreland County Airport Authority, met the procedural requirements.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

The Airport Authority requests the release of a total of 4.271 acres of required Right-of-Way for the SR 981 widening project and 0.785 acres for a Temporary Construction Easement. The purpose of the project is to address geometric deficiencies of the roadway, reduce the number of crashes at the SR 0981/SR 2027 intersection, and reduce route confusion utilizing current smart transportation criteria. The project is being coordinated by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. There are seventeen parcels included in the proposed 4.271 acre land release, which are sliver takes, that were originally purchased using local funds and/or utilizing Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding. Three of the parcels (0.610 acres) were purchased using local funds for non-aviation use. The existing property use (remaining 3.661 acres) consists of dedicated airport property. As shown on the Airport Layout Plan, the property is not needed now or in the future for airport development. Proceeds from sale of the property that was purchased with federal funds will be utilized toward future Airport Improvement Program (AIP) eligible capital improvement projects at LBE.

Any person may inspect the request by appointment at the FAA office address listed above.

Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed lease. All comments will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable.
