Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 121 / Friday, June 23, 2006 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 11–1, 11–2, 11–3, and 13–1 through 13– 3). FAA Action: Approved. The flight tracking system must technically be able to interface with the FAA equipment and operations, and be done in compliance with FAA data download requirements. Eligibility for Federal funding and scope of the proposed project will be determined at the time of application. For purposes of aviation safety, this approval does not extend to the use of monitoring equipment for enforcement purposes by in-situ measurement of any pre-set noise thresholds and shall not be used for mandatory enforcement of any voluntary measure. 4. Support the Implementation/Funding for the Implementation of RNAV Procedures While Table 13–1, Summary of Recommended Measures, describes this as a single measure, the NCP describes this support in two ways. (NCP, pages 11–5 through 11–6; 11–8 and 11–9; Tables 11–1, 11–2, 11–3 and 13–1). (a) Pages 11–5 and 11–6 suggest a curved RNAV approach to Runway 6, the ‘‘MAPUL 1 Instrument Departure Procedure (IDP) in reverse’’ might be feasible in the future. The NCP states ‘‘This approach would also likely provide the most benefit if implemented primarily during nighttime hours. The NCP recommendation is to ‘‘continue to monitor the potential for this type of approach and further evaluate it when the technology is more readily available.’’ The airport sponsor recommends the FAA study advance technology navigational procedures to determine if they can be used for noise mitigation at RSW. FAA Action: Approved as to sponsor efforts to monitor and evaluate this RNAV approach. (b) At pages 11–8 and 11–9, the NCP evaluates ‘‘Other actions or combinations of actions which would have a beneficial noise control or abatement impact on the public.’’ The NCP states in relevant part ‘‘* * * The MAPUL–1 RNAV procedures is currently pending publication and implementation. This procedure will help reduce the potential for drift as aircraft depart Runway 24 and climb out through the Alico corridor. The MAPUL–1 RNAV procedure will allow properly equipped aircraft to make adjustments to their course as may be required to * * * minimize the impacts on the surrounding residential communities.’’ In the NCP, it is recommended that the FAA continue with the planned implementation of the MAPUL–1 RNAV procedure and VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:22 Jun 22, 2006 Jkt 208001 maintain support for the expansion of the RNAV program. FAA Action: No Action Required. Land Use Measures The analysis of recommendations in Chapter 11 refers to a single land use measure described in Chapter 12 of the NCP (page 11–6, Options Required for Consideration by FAR Part 150). That recommendation is to update overlay zones and the requirements therein for Lee County. 5. Update Noise Overlay Zones During the Noise Overlay Zone Land Development Code approval process (completed in 2000), the Lee County Commission directed the Lee County Port Authority to reevaluate the overlay zone in an Update to the FAR Part 150 study to be completed by 2006. The Commission recognized that quieter aircraft were being added to the air carrier and cargo fleet mix and felt that the update should occur to determine whether the extent of the overlay zone limits and associated controls should be maintained or modified Proposed overlay zones are shown on Exhibit 12–2 and are for the year 2020. This is to address potential long range noise impacts and expected growth in airport operations (page 12–6). A summary of the land uses of the land uses for the four zones depicted on Exhibit 12–2 is on page 12–4. Zone B encompasses the DNL 60 dB noise contour. No new noise-sensitive land uses would be allowed. Overflights and notice of potential noise associated with the airport would apply to all development, new and existing. Land uses in Zone B compare to previous Zone 3, with the addition of public notification. Due to the reduction in noise exposure since the last Part 150 study (approved in 1995), the zones and controls have been modified. Zones C and D (encompassing areas larger than Zone B), would include notification of potential noise and overflights. Notification will include reference to factual information about flight corridors, proposed long range airport development, and anticipated growth in operations at the airport for the 2020 timeframe (Zone C). Flight training notice would be provided for Zone D (page 12–9). The LCPA will be proactive about publishing notification and preparing a noise notification brochure for distribution as described on page 12–10. It will provide facts about corridors and discourage noise sensitive development in the corridors (page 12–11, Exhibit 12–10). Also, LCPA will have a record PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36163 of flight corridors used, via passive radar (Measure 3 in this ROA). LCPA proposes to update forecasts in five years per Lee Plan Policy 1.7.1 or sooner if events occur to significantly alter the contours (pages 12–12 and 12–13). (NCP, pages 12–1 through 12–13; Exhibits 12–1, 12–2, 12–3, 12–4, 12–5, 12–6, 12–7, 12–8, 12–9, and 12–10; and Tables 12–1, 12–2, and 13–1) FAA Action: Approved. This is within the authority of the local land use jurisdictions; the Federal government does not control local land use. Outside the DNL 65 dB noise contour, FAA as a matter of policy encourages local efforts to prevent new noncompatible development immediately abutting the DNL 65 dB contour and to provide a buffer for possible growth in noise contours beyond the forecast period. These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of Approval signed by the FAA on May 30, 2006. The Record of Approval, as well as other evaluation materials and the documents comprising the submittal, are available for review at the FAA office listed above and at the administrative office of the Lee County Port Authority. The Record of Approval also will be available online at http:/www.faa.gov/arp/ environmental/14cfr150/index14.cfm. Issued in Orlando, Florida on June 15, 2006.
