The property is located on the east side of the airport in the vicinity of Ellsworth Road. The land is presently unused and undeveloped. The land is needed for the construction of State Route 24, Gateway Freeway, which will encroach into airport property. The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority has agreed to the sale of the small parcel to the State of Arizona since the property is not needed for airport purposes. The conveyance will not impede future development of the airport, while SR–24 will improve access to the east side of the airport. The sale price will be based on its appraised market value and the sale proceeds will be deposited in the airport account and used for airport purposes. The use of the property as a public roadway represents a compatible use that will not interfere with airport operations. The airport will be properly compensated, thereby serving the interests of civil aviation. Issued in Hawthorne, California, on August 10, 2011.
