needed for airport purposes. The property will be conveyed at its fair 
market value for the benefit of the airport. The use of the land by the 
City of Delano will remain the same and represents a continued 
compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its

    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    The City of Delano, California requested a release from the 
conditions contained in the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Assurance 
obligations for approximately 9.89 acres of airport land. The property 
is located on the west and north sides of the airport in the vicinity 
of Lexington Street. A City public works facility occupies 7.8 acres, 
while 2.09 acres serve as part of the city golf course. The land has 
not served an airport purpose and will not be needed for future airport 
purposes. The land will be conveyed to the City for its fair market 
value. The property will continue to be used for the same purpose, so 
it will remain a compatible use that will not interfere with airport 
operations. The conveyance will not prevent development of the airport, 
thereby serving the interests of civil aviation.
