of airport property at the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) under the 
provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). Representatives of the Sponsor 
requested a release from the FAA to sell two tracts of land, 4.51 acres 
and 2.06 acres respectively. Both parcels will be developed for light 
industrial use. The FAA determined the request to release property at 
the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) submitted by the Sponsor meets the 
procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the 
release 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 Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) is proposing the release of two 
airport parcels containing 4.51 acres and 2.06 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 Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) 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 dispose of 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, upon appointment and request, inspect the 
application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be 
related to the application in person at the Ottumwa City Hall.

    Issued in Kansas City, MO, on January 18, 2022.
James A. Johnson,
Director, FAA Central Region, Airports Division.
