                Council Bluffs Municipal Airport (CBF) under the provisions of 49
                U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). The Council Bluffs Airport Authority requested a
                release from the FAA to sell the parcel to Pottawattamie County to
                construct a new Roads Department Office and Vehicle Maintenance Shop.
                The FAA determined this request to release and sell property at the

                the procedural requirements of the FAA and the release and sale of the

                 The following is a brief overview of the request:
                 The Council Bluffs Municipal Airport (CBF) is proposing the release
                and sale of a parcel of airport property containing 14.1 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 Council Bluffs
                Municipal Airport (CBF) 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

                Airport.
