Notice of Release From Federal Surplus Property and Grant 
Assurance Obligations at Oroville Municipal Airport (OVE), Oroville, 
California

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of request to release airport land.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and 
invites public comment on the application for a release of 
approximately 6.50 acres of airport property at the Oroville Municipal 
Airport (OVE), Oroville, California from all conditions contained in 
the Surplus Property Deed and Grant Assurances because the parcel of 
land is not needed for airport purposes. The land requested to be 
released is located outside of the airport fence along the southern 
boundary of the airport. The release will allow the City of Oroville 
(City) to sell the property at its fair market value, thereby 
benefiting the Airport and serving the interest of civil aviation. The 
City is also requesting a land-use change for approximately 13.62 acres 
of land adjacent to the 6.50 acres so it may be leased at its fair 
market value for non-aeronautical purposes to earn revenue for the 
airport. The proposed use will be compatible with the airport and will 
not interfere with the airport or its operation.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before May 20, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Comments on the request may be mailed 
or delivered to the FAA at the following address: Robert Lee, Airports 
Compliance Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, San Francisco 
Airports District Office, Federal Register Comment, 1000 Marina 
Boulevard, Suite 220, Brisbane, CA 94005. In addition, one copy of the 
comment submitted to the FAA must be mailed or delivered to Mr. Art da 
Rosa, Director of Public Works, 1735 Montgomery Street, Oroville, CA 
95965-4897.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Wendell H. Ford 
Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21), 
Public Law 106-181 (Apr. 5, 2000; 114 Stat. 61), this notice must be 
published in the Federal Register 30 days before the Secretary may 
waive any condition imposed on a federally obligated airport by surplus 
property conveyance deeds or grant agreements.

    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    The City of Oroville, California requested a release from Federal 
surplus property and grant assurance obligations for approximately 6.50 
acres of airport land to allow for its sale and a land-use change for 
approximately 13.62 acres of airport land for long term leasing for 
non-aeronautical revenue generating purposes. The property was

was deeded to the City of Oroville on May 9, 1947. The parcels of land 
are located south of the airfield, outside of the airport fence line; 
and along the southern perimeter of the Airport near Larkin Road.
    The City of Oroville will sell the 6.50 acres of property at fair 
market value and lease 13.62 acres of undeveloped airport land for fair 
market rental value for non-aeronautical revenue producing purposes.
    The sales proceeds and rental income will be devoted to airport 
operations and capital projects. The reuse of the property will not

interests of civil aviation.
