SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the 
request to release property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport 
under the provisions of the AIR 21 (49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2)).
    On January 15, 2013, the FAA determined that the request to release 
property at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport submitted by 
Jefferson County meets the procedural requirements of the Federal 
Aviation Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or 
in part, no later than March 6, 2013.
    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    Jefferson County is proposing the release from the terms, 
conditions, reservations, and restrictions on a 120 acre parcel of 
acquired by Jefferson County on June 2, 1959. This property was 
transferred to the Jefferson County Airport Authority in April of 1966. 
With the dissolution of the Airport Authority in 1998, this property 
ownership was then transferred back to Jefferson County, as the airport 
sponsor, January 11, 1999. Elevation constraints of this parcel 
compared to the Runway environment makes it unusable for airport 
development. The property is currently being leased to the City of 
Westminster, and consists of the back nine holes of the Heritage Golf 
Course. The expected use of the property is to remain a golf course 
with the City of Westminster having ownership. The proceeds for the 
disposal of the property will be at fair market value and will be 
utilized to complete a much needed taxiway to enhance safety within the 
hangar area on the airfield. This proposed taxiway is identified on the 
current Airport Layout Plan.
    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 germane to the application 
in person at the St George Airport.

    Issued in Denver, Colorado, on January 15, 2013.
John P. Bauer,
Manager, Denver Airports District Office.
