The FAA is reviewing a request by the Mobile Airport Authority to designate 6.00 acres of land for non-aeronautical use on the airport layout plan. The airport layout plan update, if approved as submitted, would change the use of 6.00 aces on the Mobile Downtown Airport from aeronautical to non-aeronautical. The property will be leased for Commercial Development. The location of the land relative to existing or anticipated aircraft noise contours greater than 65ldn are not considered to be an issue. The proceeds from the lease of this property will be used for airport purposes. The proposed use of this property is compatible with airport operations.

Any person may inspect the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the request, notice and other documents germane to the request in person at the Mobile Downtown Airport (BFM).
