SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA is reviewing a request to release 84.61 acres of surplus property at the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47151(d). On March 29, 2019, the Virgin Islands Port Authority requested the FAA release 84.61 acres of surplus property for commercial development. The FAA has determined that the proposed property release at the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX), as submitted by the Virgin Islands Port Authority, meets the procedural requirements of the FAA and 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. 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 aviation facilities at the Henry E. Rohlsen 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 Henry E. Rohlsen Airport.
