SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure maps submitted for the Atlantic City International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective July 15, 2005. Further, FAA is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program for that airport which will be approved or disapproved on or before January 11, 2006. This notice also announces the availability of this program for public review and comment. Under section 103 of the Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (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 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. As an airport operator who has submitted noise exposure maps that are found by the FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR)Part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes for the reduction of existing non-compatible uses and for the PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43503 prevention of the introduction of additional non-compatible uses. The South Jersey Transportation Authority submitted to the FAA in a letter dated, December 31, 2004, noise exposure maps, descriptions and other documentation. It was requested that the FAA review this material as the noise exposure maps, as described in section 103(a)(1) 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 10(b) of the Act. The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and related description submitted by the South Jersey Transportation Authority. The specific maps under consideration are the 2004 Noise Exposure (Figure 1.1) and the 2009 Noise Exposure Map (Figures 1.2), Flight Tracks (Figures 5.1, 5.2), Incompatible Land Uses (Figure 7.3), and Noise Sensitive Sites (Figure 8.3). Additional description is contained in Chapter 8 (numbers of residents within noise contours) and in Chapter 6, (Fleet Mix—Tables 6.3 and 6.4) and Chapter 3 (Runway Use). The FAA has determined that these maps, tables and accompanying narrative for Atlantic City International Airport are in compliance with the applicable requirements. This determination is effective on July 15, 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 a commitment to approve a noise compatibility program or the 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 103 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 107 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 E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1 43504 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 143 / Wednesday, July 27, 2005 / Notices overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator, which submitted these maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 103 of the Act.

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by South Jersey 
Transportation Authority for Atlantic City International Airport under 
provisions of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 
1979 (Pub. L. 96-193) and 14 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 Atlantic 
City International Airport under part 150 in conjunction with the noise 
exposure maps, and that this program will be approved or disapproved on 
or before January 11, 2006.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's determination on 
the noise exposure maps and of the start of its review of the 
associated noise compatibility program is July 15, 2005. The public 
comment period ends September 13, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Maria Stanco, New York Airports 
District Office, 600 Old Country Road, Suite 440, Garden City, New York 
11530. Comments on the proposed noise compatibility programs should 
also be submitted to the above office.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for the Atlantic City 
International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of 
Part 150, effective July 15, 2005. Further, FAA is reviewing a proposed 
noise compatibility program for that airport which will be approved or 
disapproved on or before January 11, 2006. This notice also announces 
the availability of this program for public review and comment.
    Under section 103 of the Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise 
Abatement Act of 1979 (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 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.
    As an airport operator who has submitted noise exposure maps that 
are found by the FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of 
Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR)Part 150, promulgated pursuant to 
Title I of the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA 
approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or 
proposes for the reduction of existing non-compatible uses and for the 
prevention of the introduction of additional non-compatible uses.
    The South Jersey Transportation Authority submitted to the FAA in a 
letter dated, December 31, 2004, noise exposure maps, descriptions and 
other documentation. It was requested that the FAA review this material 
as the noise exposure maps, as described in section 103(a)(1) 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 10(b) of the Act.
    The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and 
related description submitted by the South Jersey Transportation 
Authority. The specific maps under consideration are the 2004 Noise 
Exposure (Figure 1.1) and the 2009 Noise Exposure Map (Figures 1.2), 
Flight Tracks (Figures 5.1, 5.2), Incompatible Land Uses (Figure 7.3), 
and Noise Sensitive Sites (Figure 8.3). Additional description is 
contained in Chapter 8 (numbers of residents within noise contours) and 
in Chapter 6, (Fleet Mix--Tables 6.3 and 6.4) and Chapter 3 (Runway 
Use). The FAA has determined that these maps, tables and accompanying 
narrative for Atlantic City International Airport are in compliance 
with the applicable requirements. This determination is effective on 
July 15, 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 a commitment to approve a noise 
compatibility program or the 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 103 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 107 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

[[Page 43504]]

overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties 
on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator, which 
submitted these maps, or with those public agencies and planning 
agencies with which consultation is required under section 103 of the 
Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, 
which 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 
Atlantic City International Airport, effective on July 15, 2005. 
Preliminary review of the submitted material indicated 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 January 11, 2006.
    The FAA's detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provision 
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, created an undue burden on interstate of 
foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal 
of reducing existing non-compatible land used and preventing the 
introduction of additional non-compatible land uses.
    Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program 
with specific reference to these factors, all comments, other than 
those properly addressed to local land use authorities, will be 
considered by the FAA to the extend practicable. Copies of the noise 
exposure maps and the proposed noise compatibility program are 
available for examination at the following locations:
