SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the 
request to release approximately 1.67 acres of airport property at the 
Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 
47107(h)(2). On January 24, 2013, the Airport Authority at the Ankeny 
Regional Airport requested from the FAA that approximately 1.67 acres 
of

[[Page 16912]]

property be released for sale to Lucille M. Johnson and family for use 
as a farming operation. On January 31, 2013, the FAA determined that 
the request to release property at the Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) 
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:
    Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) is proposing the release of one 
parcel, of 1.67 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 Ankeny Regional Airport (IKV) 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 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 Ankeny Regional 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 Ankeny Regional Airport.

    Issued in Kansas City, MO, on March 12, 2013.
Jim A. Johnson,
Manager, Airports Division.
