The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is a cooperating Federal agency, having jurisdiction by law due to the potential for significant wetland impacts. ACTION: Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Impact Statement AGENCY: Location of Proposed Action: The proposed airport site (identified as the West Bay Site in the FEIS) is located in northwestern Bay County, Florida, approximately 20 miles north and west of the existing airport site. The Proposed Action includes three mitigation parcels PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27771 located immediately south of County Road 388 and adjacent to the West Bay. SUMMARY: The FAA announces that an FEIS for the Proposed Relocation of the Panama City-Bay County International Airport is available for public review. The FEIS includes the section 7 consultation with United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) regarding the Proposed Action’s impact to threatened and endangered species. An Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) and Living Marine Resources (LMR) Assessment is included in the FEIS. The FEIS discusses impacts to the base floodplain and wetlands and measures to mitigate those impacts. The FAA is seeking comments on those sections of the FEIS that have been updated and/or contain additional information not previously contained in the DEIS. Please see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for a listing of sections of the FEIS and associated appendices that have been updated or contain additional information. Additional information regarding potential redevelopment of the existing airport site under the West Bay Site alternatives was published following public availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). This information has been analyzed and is included in the FEIS for disclosure purposes but is not part of the Proposed Action. All comments are to be submitted to Virginia Lane of the FAA, at the address shown in the section below entitled ‘‘For Further Information or to Submit Comments Contact.’’ The USACE has requested that the FAA be the recipient of all comments regarding their actions. The USACE is a cooperating Federal agency for this FEIS, having jurisdiction by law because the proposed federal action has the potential for significant wetland impacts, and would require the USACE to approve issuance of a permit to fill wetlands under section 404 of the Clean Water Act. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA as lead agency and the USACE, as a cooperating agency, have prepared the FEIS for the proposed relocation of the Panama City-Bay County International Airport. FAA published a DEIS in November 2004. The DEIS was prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The DEIS assessed the potential impacts of five proposed action alternatives, described as the Existing Site—No-Action Alternative, Existing Site—Extend Runway 14–32, 6,800 Feet Southeast, Existing Site—Extend Runway 14–32, 8,400 Feet Southeast, West Bay Site— Runway 16–34, 6800 Feet (referred to in the FEIS as Scenario 1), and the West E:\FR\FM\12MYN1.SGM 12MYN1
