Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of a non-aeronautical land-use change.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a land-use change for approximately 2.7 acres of airport property at Reid Hill View Airport, and approximately 2.999 acres at San Martin Airport, Santa Clara County, California. The land use change will allow a partial release of airport land from the aeronautical use provisions of the Grant Assurances that require it to serve an airport purposes since the land is not needed for aeronautical uses. The land for partial release is 2.7 acres of a 55.09 acre parcel at Reid Hill View Airport and is currently vacant. The land for partial release is 2.999 acres of a 63.79 acre parcel at San Martin Airport and is also currently vacant. Solar systems will be placed on the leased parcels to generate clean renewable energy for Santa Clara County. In return, fair market value rent will be paid as lease revenue at both airports. This project will serve the interest of civil aviation by contributing to the self-sustainability of the two airports.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before June 22, 2017.
