SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request for a Land Release of a 6.1 acre airport owned parcel located at 1612 Coates Avenue, NY, under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47125(a). Based on a full review, the FAA determined that the Land Release request for the parcel in question Avenue parcel, submitted by the Town of Islip on behalf of the Long Island MacArthur Airport, met the procedural requirements.

The Town of Islip requested a Land Release of an airport owned parcel, not contiguous to the airport and located at 1612 Coates Avenue, Holbrook, NY. The airport has determined that the parcel is not suitable for aeronautical activity and it is no longer needed for aeronautical operations. The revenue generated by the sale will be used for airport purposes.

The property has been under Airport ownership since 1989 and it is no longer needed for aviation purposes. There exits private sector interest to develop the property in accordance with current zoning. Such development would be consistent with the surrounding area and interest in residential development.

Transferring the property to the private sector and allowing private sector investment would be of benefit to the Town of Islip, the airport, and the surrounding area by providing up to nine single family homes in a residential area with high demand. The land release would be contingent on deed restrictions for the new residential units to ensure the interest of the airport are considered with any new development consistent with Order 5190.6B Ch. 22. All proceeds generated from the sale of the property must be used exclusively by the airport in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(b) and the FAA's policy on revenue use. Any person may inspect the request by appointment at the FAA office address listed above. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed Land Release application for an airport owned parcel. All comments will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable.
