SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the 
request to release approximately 67.72 acres of airport 
property at the Kearney Regional Airport (EAR) under the provisions of 
49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On July 1, 2013, the City Attorney at the 
Kearney Regional Airport requested from the FAA that approximately 
67.72 acres of property be released for sale to the City of 
Kearney for them to transfer to the Veteran's Administration for 
construction of the Central Nebraska Veteran's Home. On September 29, 
2013, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the 
Kearney Regional Airport (EAR) 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:
    The Kearney Regional Airport (EAR) is proposing the release of 
airport property totaling 67.72 acres, more or less. This land is to be 
used for construction of a new Central Nebraska Veteran's Home. 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 Kearney Regional 
Airport (EAR) 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 Kearney 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 Kearney Regional Airport.

    Issued in Kansas City, MO, on October 2, 2013.
Jim A. Johnson,
 Manager, Airports Division.
