June 28, 2017


Lori Ryan, Public
Information Officer, (406) 444-6821,

Montana Department
of Transportation Aeronautics Division Schedules Public Meeting to
Review Proposed Lifting of Select Yellowstone Airport Deed

WEST YELLOWSTONE ó The Montana Department of
Transportation Aeronautics Division (MDT) would like to invite the
public to an informational meeting for the potential release of
select deed restrictions for the Yellowstone Airport in West

This meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday,
July 12, at the Yellowstone Airport in the Aircraft Rescue and Fire
Fighting (ARFF) Building at 629 Yellowstone Airport Road. The meeting
will begin with a presentation of the background, deed restrictions
proposed to be lifted, reasoning for lifting of select deed
restrictions, and non-aeronautical use development process, to be
followed by a Q&A session. Project team members will be available
during the meeting to discuss the project. 

The proposed
administrative action will entail the release of select deed
restrictions imposed on the airport property when it conveyed in the
1960s. The purpose of the action is to allow MDT to consider revenue
generating possibilities from the development of non-aeronautical use
areas of the airport. Such revenue generation would allow the airport
to become more financially self-sufficient in accordance with Federal
Aviation Administration grant assurances.
