Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on a Parcel Swap at Belfast Municipal Airport in Belfast, ME
Document Number: 2016-13935
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-06-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Under our provisions this notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the City of Belfast in Belfast, ME to swap two parcels of land between the City of Belfast and the State of Maine Department of Defense and Veterans Services (Military Bureau) for the construction of a parallel taxiway at Belfast Municipal Airport in Belfast, ME. The Airport wishes to construct a parallel taxiway for Runway 15- 33, and in order for the taxiway to be constructed to FAA standards, the Airport needs to acquire land from the adjacent landholder, the Military Bureau. The Military Bureau indicated that from a practical point, a land swap would be the most efficient option for them to release land to the Airport. The parcel the Airport is seeking to release and dispose of is currently not needed for aviation purposes. Both the City of Belfast and the Military Bureau have obtained the proper approvals from the Belfast City Council and the Maine State Legislature to release the two parcels of land in April and October of 2015, respectively.
