Notice of Release From Federal Grant Assurance Obligations for Elko Regional Airport (EKO), Elko, Nevada
Document Number: 2015-16207
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-07-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 5,037 square feet of airport property at the Elko Municipal Airport (Airport), City of Elko, Nevada. The City of Elko proposes to release the airport land in order to acquire an equal 5,037 square feet parcel of privately-owned land. The land exchange was proposed after a 2011 deed survey disclosed that the airport perimeter fence encroached into private property abutting the airport. Relocation of the fence is not practical due to the cost associated with moving the fence and underground utilities. The parties concluded that the encroachment problem could be resolved with an equitable land exchange. Since the release land is not needed for airport purposes, the exchange will not negatively impact the airport or civil aviation.
