SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the 
request to release approximately 2.5 acres of airport property at the 
Oakley Municipal Airport (OEL) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 
47107(h)(2). On October 22, 2012, the City of Oakley's City 
Administrator requested from the FAA that approximately 2.5 acres of 
property be released for sale to Matt Mildenberger of Mitten's, Inc. 
for a restaurant. On March 5, 2013, the FAA determined that the request 
to release property at Oakley Municipal Airport (OEL) 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:
    Oakley Municipal Airport (OEL) is proposing the release of a 
parcel, totaling 2.5 acres. 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 Oakley Municipal Airport (OEL) being changed from aeronautical to 
nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the 
AIP 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 Oakley Municipal 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 Oakley Municipal Airport.

    Issued in Kansas City, MO on March 26, 2013.

 Manager, Airports Division.
