Under the provisions of AIR 21 (49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2).
    On August 14, 2014, the FAA determined that the request to release 
property for non-aeronautical purposes at Elizabeth City Regional 
Airport meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation 
Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part,

    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County Airport Authority is proposing 
to release approximately 0.396 acres at Elizabeth City Regional 
Airport. The change to non-aeronautical use is needed so the Airport 
Authority can grant additional right of way to the North Carolina 
Department of Transportation for the proposed widening of North 
Carolina 344 and the addition of a left turn lane at Stare Road 1131 
(Consolidated Rd.). The turn lane will improve safety conditions at 
this intersection and improve traffic flow to the airport and 
surrounding community. The Airport Authority Board has approved of this 
action and has agreed on a fair market value compensation of $17,125.
    Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at 
the FAA office listed in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

    Issued in Memphis, TN, on August 14, 2014.

Manager, Memphis Airports District Office.
