SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that Start Printed Page 900requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

The property is currently a vacant, mowed lot maintained for compatible land use around the airfield. The proposed non-aeronautical land use would be for lease or sale to enhance commercial opportunities in an area no longer needed for aeronautical purposes. The property was originally owned by the U.S. Government that quit claimed the property to the City of Battle Creek, Michigan in 1947. In 1961, the National Emergency Use Provision was released from this property. In 1986 the FAA released a portion of the total parcel, but retained the 200′ x 200′ parcel to protect a navigational aid. The navigational aid has since been relocated and there is no longer an aeronautical use for the property. The airport will receive Fair Market Value for the land to be leased/sold.

The disposition of proceeds from the sale of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999 (64 FR 7696).

This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of the subject airport property at the W.K. Kellogg Airport, Battle Creek, Michigan, from federal land covenants, subject to a reservation for continuing right of flight as well as restrictions on the released property as required in FAA Order 5190.6B section 22.16. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.
