ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the City of Fresno for Fresno Yosemite International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act) and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable requirements. EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the FAA’s determination on the noise exposure maps is July 6, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Camille Garibaldi, Environmental Protection Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, Western Pacific Region, San Francisco Airports District Office, 831 Mitten Road, Suite 210, Burlingame, California 94010, Telephone: (650) 876– 2778, extension 613. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure maps submitted for Fresno Yosemite International Airport and supplemental information dated April 20, 2005, are in compliance with applicable requirements of part 150, effective July 6, 2005. Under 49 U.S.C. section 47503 of 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 VerDate jul<14>2003 16:18 Aug 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 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 FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation submitted by City of Fresno, California. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in section 150.7 of part 150 includes: Figure 27 ‘‘2004 Existing Conditions CNEL Contour,’’ and Figure 28 ‘‘2009 Five-Year Forecast Conditions CNEL Contours.’’ The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and forecast information including the depiction of the airport and its boundaries, the runway configurations, land uses such as residential, open space, commercial/ office, community facilities, libraries, churches, open space, infrastructure, vacant and warehouse and those areas within the Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) 65, 70 and 75 noise contours. Estimates for the number of people within these contours for the year 2004 are shown in Table 35. Estimates of the future residential population within the 2009 noise contours are shown in Table 36. Figure 11 displays the location of noise monitoring sites. Flight tracks for the existing and the five-year forecast Noise Exposure Maps are found in Figures 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 and 37. The type and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime operations) for the year 2004 are found in Tables 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19. The type and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime operations) for the year 2009 are found in Tables 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29. The FAA has determined that these noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on July 6, 2005. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s noise exposure maps is limited to a finding that the maps were PO 00000 Frm 00147 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50437 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 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. Copies of the full noise exposure map documentation and of the FAA’s evaluation of the maps are available for examination at the following locations: Federal Aviation Administration, Community and Environmental Needs Division, APP–600, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591.

Airport, Fresno, CA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the City of 
Fresno for Fresno Yosemite International Airport under the provisions 
of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act) 
and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable requirements.

EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the FAA's determination on the 
noise exposure maps is July 6, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Camille Garibaldi, Environmental 
Protection Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, Western Pacific 
Region, San Francisco Airports District Office, 831 Mitten Road, Suite 
210, Burlingame, California 94010, Telephone: (650) 876-2778, extension 
613.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for Fresno Yosemite 
International Airport and supplemental information dated April 20, 
2005, are in compliance with applicable requirements of part 150, 
effective July 6, 2005. Under 49 U.S.C. section 47503 of 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 
non-compatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional non-
compatible uses.
    The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and 
accompanying documentation submitted by City of Fresno, California. The 
documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure Maps'' as defined 
in section 150.7 of part 150 includes: Figure 27 ``2004 Existing 
Conditions CNEL Contour,'' and Figure 28 ``2009 Five-Year Forecast 
Conditions CNEL Contours.'' The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and 
forecast information including the depiction of the airport and its 
boundaries, the runway configurations, land uses such as residential, 
open space, commercial/office, community facilities, libraries, 
churches, open space, infrastructure, vacant and warehouse and those 
areas within the Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) 65, 70 and 75 
noise contours. Estimates for the number of people within these 
contours for the year 2004 are shown in Table 35. Estimates of the 
future residential population within the 2009 noise contours are shown 
in Table 36. Figure 11 displays the location of noise monitoring sites. 
Flight tracks for the existing and the five-year forecast Noise 
Exposure Maps are found in Figures 32, 33, 34, 35, 36 and 37. The type 
and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime operations) 
for the year 2004 are found in Tables 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 
18, and 19. The type and frequency of aircraft operations (including 
nighttime operations) for the year 2009 are found in Tables 20, 21, 22, 
23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29. The FAA has determined that these noise 
exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with 
applicable requirements. This determination is effective on July 6, 
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 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.
