SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    If a recipient of Federal assistance under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 53 
decides that an asset acquired at least in part with that assistance is 
no longer needed for a transit purpose, the Secretary of Transportation 
may authorize the recipient to transfer the asset to a local 
governmental authority to be used for a public purpose with no further 
obligation to the Federal Government if (A) the asset will remain in 
public use for at least 5 years after the date the asset is 
transferred; (B) there is no purpose eligible for assistance under 
chapter 53 for which the asset should be used; (C) the overall benefit 
of allowing the transfer is greater than the interest of the Government 
in liquidation and return of the financial interest of the Government 
in the asset, after considering fair market value and other factors; 
and (D) through an appropriate screening or survey process, that there 
is no interest in acquiring the asset for Government use if the asset 
is a facility or land. 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1). 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1). If 
the asset is a facility or land, the Secretary may authorize a transfer 
for a public purpose other than public transportation only if the 
Secretary determines, through an appropriate screening or survey 
process, that no Federal agency has an interest in acquiring the asset 
for a government use. 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)(D).

The Property

    The Property is comprised of two parcels of land located at (1) 
3607 Hunt Street NW, Gig Harbor, WA (Pierce County Assessor's Parcel 
0221083054), a site containing an area of 23,100 square feet; and (2) 
3611 Hunt Street NW, Gig Harbor, WA (Pierce County Assessor's Parcel 
0221083032), a site containing an area of 20,909 square feet. The two 
parcels total 1.01 acres and each has a single-family residence that 
had been converted to small business use prior to acquisition by Pierce 
Transit. The zoning is B-2, General Business District. The Property is 
adjacent to SR 16 and the site is located at a dead end of Hunt Street. 
The highest and best use of these parcels was identified as demolition 
of the existing structures and redevelopment of the sites with low 
intensity uses that utilize private septic systems. The site lacks 
sewer service. The nearest sewer line is located approximately 3,300 
feet away. The lack of sewer at the site results in significant 
limitations to its future use.
    Pierce Transit purchased both properties in 2006 for a park and 
ride lot, but the project was canceled in 2009. 3607 Hunt Street NW was 
acquired for $345,000, and 3611 Hunt Street NW was acquired for 
$500,000. Both parcels have depreciated significantly in value. The 
City of Gig Harbor proposes to use the property for a community service 
facility.

to the City of Gig Harbor otherwise satisfies the requirements of 49 
U.S.C. 5334(h)(1). This notice serves as an appropriate screening or
