Transfer of Federally Assisted Land or Facility
Notice of intent to transfer Federally assisted land or facility.
Section 5334(h) of the Federal Transit Laws, as codified, 49 U.S.C. 5301, et seq., permits the Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to authorize a recipient of FTA funds to transfer land or a facility to a public body for any public purpose with no further obligation to the Federal Government if, among other things, no Federal agency is interested in acquiring the asset for Federal use. Accordingly, FTA is issuing this Notice to advise Federal Agencies that South Bend Public Transportation (``Transpo'') intends to transfer the Leighton Parking Garage property (the ``Facility'') to the City of South Bend, acting by and through its Board of Public Works (the ``City''). The Facility is located at 109 West Jefferson Boulevard, South Bend, Indiana. It is in downtown South Bend on a parcel of property bounded by Michigan Street, Jefferson Boulevard, Main Street, and Wayne Street. The Facility is a parking garage with approximately 215 underground parking spaces and aproximately 429 above-ground parking spaces including all equipment used to control parking.
