The request to release property may be reviewed, by appointment, in person at this same location. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the request to release a 5.27 acre parcel of airport property at the Malden Regional Airport & Industrial Park (MAW) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). This is a Surplus Property Airport. The City of Malden requested a release from PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8827 the FAA to sell the parcel to Walter Spence for future development. The FAA determined this request to release and sell property at the Malden Regional Airport & Industrial Park (MAW) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the FAA and the release and sale of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice. The following is a brief overview of the request: The Malden Regional Airport & Industrial Park (MAW) is proposing the release and sale of a parcel of airport property containing 5.27 acres. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject property will result in the land at the Malden Regional Airport & Industrial Park (M) being changed from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances in order to sell the land. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation use. 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 request an appointment to inspect the application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at the Malden City Hall.

Background: The Findings in a September 2011 Government Accountability Office (GAO) Report concerning FHWA’s administration of the OJT requirements indicated that FHWA needs to strengthen its stewardship and oversite of the OJT Program. Specifically, the GAO report cited, ‘‘FHWA does not know what these programs have accomplished or how effectively these activities have advanced the broader goal of bringing underrepresented individuals into the highway construction workforce, because FHWA has performed only limited assessments of these programs over their nearly 40-year history.’’ khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Feb 08, 2021 Jkt 253001 The OJT regulations (23 CFR 230.111(a)) require State DOT recipients to determine annually which contracts should include Training Special Provisions and the minimum number of trainees or trainee hours to be specified in those provisions. By delegated authority from the FHWA Office of Civil Rights (HCR), this information is submitted by the State DOT to the respective FHWA division office for concurrence and approval of the total number of training slots or hours. This total number then becomes the State DOT’s annual OJT program goal. Once an OJT goal is set, the regulations at § 230.111(b) require State DOTs that do not meet their annual goals to evaluate and report the reasons for the shortfall and remedial steps to be taken in the next calendar year. This information is due to FHWA no later than 30 days after the calendar year. Notwithstanding these requirements, there is no prescribed format for reporting this information to FHWA, so State DOT reports are varied. Further, there is no general reporting requirement that would allow HCR to evaluate the effectiveness of the OJT program nationally in meeting the primary objective: To employ, train, and upgrade minorities and women in the highway construction trades. Without any broader reporting requirement, FHWA lacks the necessary data to provide meaningful stewardship and oversight or to measure the effectiveness of OJT Programs nationally, as cited in GOA’s 2011 Report. In addition, this lack of data limits FHWA’s ability to respond to requests from stakeholders, including Congress, regarding program accomplishments. The information FHWA proposes to collect in its OJT Program Report is based on existing requirements found in 23 CFR 230, Subpart A; therefore, State DOTs should have this information readily available. Use of the OJT Program Report is optional, and it will be made available through the Civil Rights Connect System currently used by FHWA recipients. Respondents: A maximum of fiftythree recipients may respond using the OJT Program Report provided by HCR. Frequency: Every year by January 30th. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated number of hours for each of fifty-three (53) recipients to compile and submit the requested data is estimated to be not more than four (4) employee hours annually. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 212 hours for fifty-three (53) recipients annually.

assessments of these programs over their nearly 40-year history.''
    The OJT regulations (23 CFR 230.111(a)) require State DOT
