All fees and charges associated with occupying and operating on the lease property;

Approved non-commercial activities;


Prohibited non-commercial activities;


Compliance with FAA regulations and pertinent laws;

The base term for non-commercial aeronautical leases shall be no longer than twenty-five (25) years.


If the Lessee requests a renewal, the Department may agree to renew the lease, consistent with OAR 738-015-0080 (Non-Commercial Aeronautical Lease Provisions), Non-Commercial Aeronautical Lease Renewal Options, for one (1) five-year period, provided the total lease term does not exceed thirty (30) years.


At the expiration of the base term and any renewals, Lessee may request a new Lease. The Department may negotiate a new lease if the Department determines that:


The existing lease is not in default;


The lease property is not required for other airport uses;


Lessee has met its obligations under the terms of the preceding lease;


Any improvements to the lease property are structurally sound and capable of safe and legal occupancy for the new lease term; and


The Department otherwise finds that a new lease is appropriate.


The duration of the new lease shall be at the Department’s option.


Each renewal or new lease following the base term lease shall incorporate all current terms and conditions for leases and any special terms the Department deems necessary based on the particular circumstances of the Lessee and lease property.


If the Department determines that a renewal or new lease will not be offered to Lessee, the Department may require Lessee to remove any structures on the lease property, at Lessee’s expense, at the expiration of the current lease between Lessee and the Department.
