If the proposal is approved, the airport layout plan will be updated to reflect the change in the land use on 130 acres from aeronautical to non-aeronautical. The property will then be leased for Commercial Development. The location of the land relative to existing or anticipated aircraft noise contours greater than 65 DNL are not considered to be an issue. The proceeds from the lease of this property will be used for airport purposes. The proposed use of this property is compatible with airport operations.

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 request, notice and other documents germane to the request in person at the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.
