AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted by the American Samoa Government, Department of Port Administration for Pago Pago International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et. seq. (Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act) and 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 150, are in compliance with applicable requirements. The FAA also announces that it is reviewing a proposed Noise Compatibility Program that was submitted for Pago Pago International Airport under part 150 in conjunction with the noise exposure map, and that this program will be approved or disapproved on or before July 27, 2005. DATES: The effective date of the FAA’s acceptance of Noise Exposure Maps and of the start of its review of the associated Noise Compatibility Program is January 28, 2005. The public comment period ends March 29, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gordon Wong, Project Manager. Mailing address: Federal Aviation Administration, Western-Pacific Region, Honolulu Airports District Office, Box 50244, Honolulu, Hawaii 96850–0001. Street address: 300 Ala Moana Boulevard, Room 7–128, Honolulu, Hawaii 96850–0001. Telephone number (808) 541–3565. Comments on the proposed Noise Compatibility Program should also be submitted to the above office. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted for Pago Pago International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of part 150, effective January 28, 2005. Further, FAA is VerDate jul<14>2003 18:12 Feb 07, 2005 Jkt 205001 reviewing a proposed Noise Compatibility Program for that airport, which will be approved or disapproved on or before July 27, 2005. This notice also announces the availability of this program for public review and comment. Under 49 U.S.C., section 47503 (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’), an airport operator may submit to the FAA, Noise Exposure Maps which meet applicable regulations and which depict non-compatible land uses as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. An airport operator who has submitted Noise Exposure Maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) part 150, promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit a Noise Compatibility Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The American Samoa Government, Department of Port Administration submitted to the FAA on December 9, 2004, noise exposure maps, descriptions and other documentation that were produced during the FAR part 150 Noise Compatibility Study for Pago Pago International Airport which began in mid-2003. It was requested that the FAA review this material as the Noise Exposure Maps, as described in section 47503 of the Act, and that the noise mitigation measures, to be implemented jointly by the airport and surrounding communities, be approved as a Noise Compatibility Program under section 47504 of the Act. The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and related descriptions submitted by American Samoa Government, Department of Port Administration. The specific documentation determined to constitute the Noise Exposure Maps includes: Existing Year 2004 Conditions NEM and Future Year 2010 NEM/NCP exhibits, plus all other narrative, graphic, or tabular representations of the data required by section A150.101 of part 150, and sections 47503 and 47506 of the Act. The FAA has determined that these maps for Pago Pago International Airport are in compliance with PO 00000 Frm 00135 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 applicable requirements. This determination is effective on January 28, 2005. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s Noise Exposure Maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR Part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the applicant’s data, information or plans, or constitute a commitment to approve a Noise Compatibility Program or to fund the implementation of that program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a Noise Exposure Map submitted under section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in interpreting the Noise Exposure Maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under part 150 or through FAA’s review of Noise Exposure Maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 150.21 of FAR part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. The FAA has formally received the Noise Compatibility Program for Pago Pago International Airport, also effective on January 28, 2005. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the submittal of Noise Compatibility Programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before July 27, 2005. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The Primary considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
