Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; 
Central Illinois Regional Airport, Bloomington, IL

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a 
proposal to change a portion of airport land from aeronautical use to 
non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of the airport property. 
The proposal consists of Parcel C-2, a 4.1 acre portion of Parcel C, 
and Parcel C-3, a 4.9 acre portion of Parcel C-1. Presently the land is 
vacant and used as open land for control of FAR Part 77 surfaces and 
compatible land use and is not needed for aeronautical use, as shown on 
the Airport Layout Plan. There are no impacts to the airport by 
allowing the airport to dispose of the property. Parcel C (61.9 acres) 
was acquired in 1966 under FAAP grant 9-11-011-C603. Parcel C-1 (34.72 
acres) was acquired in 1966 without federal participation. It is the 
intent of the Bloomington-Normal Airport Authority (BNAA) to sell 
Parcel C-2 and Parcel C-3 in fee. This notice announces that the FAA 
intends to authorize the disposal of the subject airport property at 
Central Illinois Regional Airport, Bloomington, IL. Approval does not 
constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in disposal of 
the subject airport property nor a determination that all measures 
covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the 
FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of the airport 
property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures 
Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal 
Register on February 16, 1999.
    In accordance with section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States 
Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 
30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the 
property to be used for an aeronautical purpose. The proceeds from the 
sale of the land will be

maintained in an interest bearing account and used for reimbursement of 
Airport Improvement Program eligible development.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before March 29, 2002.
