Department of Transportation and Public Facilities

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (the Department) proposes to vacate (sell) a small portion of the Nome Airport right-of-way (ROW) to the City of Nome, the adjacent property owner.

The parcel to be vacated is located adjacent to the Nome power plant on Nome Port Road, south of the Snake River and the Nome post office annex. It is about 2.12 acres in size, and is referred to as Lots 2 and 2B of Block 20 of the Nome Airport property.

The parcel’s actual fair market value will be determined by an independent appraisal.

This disposal of ROW by the Department is authorized by AS 02.15.070.

The physical file of the proposal is available for public inspection from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, Right of Way Section, 2720 Picket Place (west side of Peger Rd.), Fairbanks, Alaska.
