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

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

dedicating it to aeronautical use and to authorize this parcel to be 
used for revenue-producing, nonaeronautical purposes.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before February 27, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Daniel J. Millenacker, Program 
Manager, Federal Aviation Administration, Airports District Office, 
6020 28th Avenue South, Room 102, Minneapolis, MN 55450-2706. Telephone 
Number (612) 253-4635; FAX Number (612) 253-4611; email address 
Daniel.J.Millenacker@FAA.GOV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The parcel of land is located along the 
southern boundary of Outagamie County Regional Airport. The parcel will 
be used for construction and operation of a Public Safety Training 
Center (PSTC) by the Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC). The PSTC is 
an educational campus intended to provide degree/diploma/certificate 
programs to students enrolled in public safety disciplines including 
fire protection, law enforcement, and emergency medical services.
    No airport landside or airside facilities are presently located on 
this parcel nor is airport development contemplated in the future. 
Development of the parcel for airside or landside operations is largely 
restricted due to significant grade differences which exist on the land 
surface. Current use of the surface of the parcel is for agricultural 
purposes. The parcel presently serves the primary purpose of protecting 
airport aeronautical (imaginary) surfaces. The parcel will continue to 
serve in this same capacity with a proposed change to nonaeronautical, 
revenue-producing use from its present aeronautical use designation.
    The parcel is depicted on the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) dated 
January 13, 1993, and the Exhibit ``A'' property map. This parcel, as 
shown on the ALP, is not needed for aeronautical use. There are no 
impacts to the airport by allowing it to waive the requirement to 
maintain the parcel as aeronautical use.
    Of the 77.5 acres, approximately 74.5 acres were originally 
purchased with sponsor funds. The remaining acres were acquired under a 
larger land acquisition grant, Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grant 
No. 3-55-0002-30-06.
    A fair market value (FMV) appraisal for the parcel was completed in 
2011 in accordance with FAA Order 5100.37A. The appraisal concluded 
that the FMV for acquisition of the parcel was $1,369,000. A standard 
capitalization rate was applied to the FMV to establish a base annual 
rent to be paid by FVTC for use of the parcel. A lease agreement 
established by the airport sponsor defines leasehold terms and 
conditions. The airport sponsor understands that rent and all other 
revenue that it collects in connection with the PSTC campus will be 
considered airport revenue and used in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 
Sections 47107 and 47133; FAA's Policy and Procedures on the Use of 
Airport Revenue; and FAA Order 51960.6B titled, ``Airport Compliance 
Manual.'' The annual income from rent payment will generate a long-
term, revenue-producing stream that will further the Sponsor's 
obligation under FAA Grant Assurance No. 24 to make the airport as 
financially self-sufficient as possible.
    The sponsor will control FVTC's use of the parcel through the terms 
and conditions of the ground lease. The lease will be subordinate to 
the sponsor's existing grant assurances. This will ensure that all 
activities contemplated on the parcel will be compatible with FAA 
requirements and airport operations.
    An environmental assessment addressing proposed development of the 
parcel was prepared. A Federal Finding of No Significant Impact was 
issued by FAA on Dec. 28, 2012.
