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 requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

The property is currently vacant, unimproved land maintained for compatible land use surrounding the airfield. The property was acquired by the Metropolitan Airports Commission in 1957-1958. The southeastern portion was acquired through the use of federal funds and the northwestern portion was purchased without the use of federal funds. The proposed non-aeronautical land use would be for compatible commercial/retail development, allowing the airport to become more self-sustaining. The airport will receive fair market value for the lease of this property.

The disposition of proceeds from the lease 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 Flying Cloud Airport, Minneapolis, Minnesota from its obligations to be maintained for aeronautical purposes. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the change in use of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.
