SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the 
request to release approximately 2.39 acres of airport property, Lot 
2, at the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) under the provisions 
of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On January 2, 2013, the Airport Manager at 
the Ottumwa Regional Airport requested from the FAA that approximately 
2.39 acres of property, Lot 2, be released for sale to Bridge 
City Truck Repair for use as a truck repair and maintenance operation. 
On July 16, 2013, the FAA determined that the request to release 
property at the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) 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:
    Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) is proposing the release of one 
parcel, Lot 2, containing 2.39 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 Ottumwa Regional 
Airport (OTM) 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 Ottumwa 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 Ottumwa Regional Airport.

    Issued in Kansas City, MO, on August 7, 2013.
Jim A. Johnson,
Manager, Airports Division.
