§                     Aviation is selling Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 150 Noise land/Airport Master Plan Land on Denver Avenue. The sale is made up of 19 vacant parcels of land zoned I-1 and R-22MF, totaling approximately 29.159 acres. The R-22MF acreage, which allows for residential multi-family use, is proposed to be rezoned to I-1, which allows for light industrial use.

§                     Aviation participates in FAA’s Part 150 Noise Program. The FAA Part 150 Noise Program requires airports to purchase properties significantly impacted by noise and put this land back into a compatible, productive use.

§                     The City has acquired multiple parcels of land located along Denver Avenue as part of the Part 150 Noise Program.
