Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change 0.38 acres of Clear Zone Easement contained in Parcel 17 to Avigation Easement in exchange for converting 1.23 acres of Avigation Easement contained in Parcel 20 to Clear Zone Easement. Both Parcel 17 and Parcel 20 share a common boundary and are owned by Crossing Rivers Health Center located at Prairie du Chien Municipal Airport, Prairie du Chien, WI. The proposed release of 0.38 acres of Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement is not in the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ). Of the easement being converted to Clear Zone from Avigation Easement in exchange for the release, 0.89 acres (of the 1.23 acres) lies in the RPZ, which brings that portion of the RPZ into conformance with FAA standards and policies.

The release of 0.38 acres from Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement is required to build an Access Road to the Crossing Rivers Health Center and install a sign for the hospital. The conversion from Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement will not result in any impact to surfaces protected by Part 77 or airport design surfaces. The Clear Zone Easement was originally purchased to enable the Airport to ensure airport compatible development. The proposed future use of 0.38 acres of the land as an access road will prevent any incompatible development of the surrounding area in the RPZ.
