SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to change approximately 623.74+ acres of airport property at the New Century AirCenter Airport (IXD) from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical for revenue producing use. These parcels will be used for commercial/industrial operations.

No airport landside or airside facilities are presently located on these parcels, nor are airport developments Start Printed Page 17448contemplated in the future. There is no current use of the surface of the parcels. These parcels will serve as revenue producing lots with the proposed change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical. The request submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the change to non-aeronautical status of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this Notice.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

The New Century AirCenter Airport (IXD) is proposing the release of five parcels, for a total of 623.74 acres, more or less from aeronautical to non-aeronautical. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The rental of the subject property will result in the land at the New Century AirCenter Airport (IXD) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market rental value for the property. The annual income from rent payments will generate a long-term, revenue-producing stream that will further the Sponsor's obligation under FAA Grant Assurance number 24, to make the New Century AirCenter Airport as financially self-sufficient as possible.

Following is a legal description of the subject airport property at the New Century AirCenter Airport (IXD):
