A land survey conducted in 2011 disclosed that the airport perimeter fence encroached into private property abutting the airport. Relocating the fence line and underground utilities would be costly for the Airport. The City offered to trade a parcel of unused airport land that is not needed for airport purposes for the portion of land into which the airport fence encroaches. The land exchange would conform to Nevada Revised Statutes for Boundary PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Line Adjustments. Appraisals concluded the two parcels have equal values. As a result, the City and land owner concluded that a land swap would represent an equitable and less expensive way to resolve the encroachment problem. The release land is not needed for airport purposes and land exchange will result in no net loss in value or negative impact for the airport. The reuse of the released parcel for commercial purposes represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation. The acquisition of the privately owned parcel will obviate the need to relocate the perimeter fence. Therefore, the exchange provides a benefit to the airport and civil aviation.
