Documents reflecting this FAA action may be reviewed at this same location. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given its overall approval to the noise compatibility program for Santa Barbara Airport, effective January 27, 2006. Under section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties including local communities, government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel. Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program, not a Federal program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended for action. The FAA’s approval or disapproval of FAR Part 150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in Part 150 and the Act and is limited to the following determinations: a. The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150; b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the Federal Government; and d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be implemented within the period covered E:\FR\FM\21MRN1.SGM 21MRN1

Noise Exposure Map Notice

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice

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

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

DATES: The effective date of the FAA's determination on the noise 
exposure maps is March 7, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Ernest Gubry, Detroit Airports 
District Office, 11677 South Wayne Road, Suite 107, Romulus, Michigan 
48174, 734-229-2905.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for Detroit Metropolitan Wayne 
County Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of part 
150, effective March 7, 2006.
    Under 49 U.S.C. 47503 of the Act, an airport operator may submit 
noise exposure maps to the FAA which meet applicable regulations and 
which depict non-compatible land use 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

[[Page 14283]]

affected parties in the local community 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 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 the Wayne County Airport 
Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ``noise exposure 
maps'' as defined in 14 CFR 150.7 includes: Existing 2004 Noise 
Exposure Map (FAR Part 150 Noise Exposure Map Submittal, Figure D25) 
and Future Baseline 2011 Noise Exposure Map (FAR Part 150 Noise 
Exposure May Submittal, Figure D28). The FAA has determined that these 
noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance 
with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on March 
7, 2006. FAA's determination on an airport operator's noise exposure 
maps is limited to a finding that the maps were development in 
accordance with the procedures contained in appendix A of 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 would 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 Sec.  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:
