The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than October 25, 2012. The following is a brief overview of the request: The City of St. George is proposing the release from the terms, conditions, reservations, and restrictions on a 40 acre parcel of property by an instrument of disposal dated June 28, 1951. The property was conveyed to St. George under Section 16 of the Surplus Property Act of 1944 to be used in developing, improving, operating, or maintaining and operating a public airport. Physical constraints of the airport site required the construction and opening of the Replacement Airport in 2011 approximately 15 miles to the east. The former St. George Airport was decommissioned on January 15, 2011. The former airport is no longer needed for aviation purposes and the release is to allow for the sale of the property so the proceeds from the sale can be used towards payment of the City’s share of the costs associated with the Replacement Airport. A portion of the property will be sold to the State of Utah for construction of an institution of higher education. The remainder of the property, will be sold as the market improves, with the proceeds being used to reimburse St. George for costs associated with the Replacement 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 germane to the application in person at the St George Airport.
