SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 330.78± acres consisting of 6 parcels of airport property at the Oskaloosa Municipal Airport (OOA) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On June 5, 2019, the City Manager of the City of Oskaloosa requested from the FAA that approximately 6 parcels of land totaling 330.78± acres of property be released for sale in order to purchase land for a new centrally located airport. On July 1, 2019, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Oskaloosa Municipal Airport (OOA) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release 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 Oskaloosa Municipal Airport (OOA) is proposing the release of airport property totaling 6 parcels totaling 330.78± acres, more or less. 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 sale of the subject property will result in the land at the Oskaloosa Municipal Airport (OOA) being changed from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances in order to dispose of the land. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation facilities at the future new airport.

Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at the Oskaloosa City Hall.
