In accordance with the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21), Public Law 106-181 (Apr. 5, 2000; 114 Stat. 61), this notice must be published in the Federal Register 30 days before the DOT Secretary may waive any condition imposed on a federally obligated airport by surplus property conveyance deeds or grant agreements.
The following is a brief overview of the request:
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) requested a release from the provisions of the Grant Agreement Assurances to permit the disposal of approximately 0.58 acres of land near Reno Stead Airport, Reno, Washoe County, Nevada to permit Artisan Communities to incorporate the 0.58-acre property into their approximately 47-acre community development. The property is located in an area zoned residential and the release will eliminate RTAA's future liability for the property since the property cannot be redeveloped for a commercial or airport purpose. The airport will be compensated for the fair market value of the released property. The RTAA supports disposal of the parcel, which has no identified airport-related purpose or future use, especially since it is 0.5 miles from the airport. Reuse of the property will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation. Based on the benefits of fair compensation in exchange for the land, the interests of civil aviation will be properly served.
