SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the provisions of Title 49, U.S.C. 47151(d), and 47153(c), the FAA is considering a proposal from the Port of Skagit to release approximately 125 acres of airport land. The Port has invested significant funds for commercial subdivisions and installation of critical infrastructure in Divisions 5 and 7, but despite the ready-to-build condition and years of steady marketing the Port has not been able to attract a suitable private-sector development on a leased basis.

Paccar, Inc., a private sector corporation, has now presented the Port with an offer to purchase. The Port commission has declared a portion of Division 5 and all of Division 7 (“the property”) surplus to the needs of Port of Skagit and desires to sell the property to Paccar in order to generate new income to be used for the benefit of the Airport.
