ACTION: Notice. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES_1 AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces that it is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program that was submitted for McClellan-Palomar Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’) and 14 CFR Part 150 by the County of San Diego. This program was submitted subsequent to a determination by FAA that associated noise exposure maps submitted under 14 CFR Part 150 for McClellan-Palomar Airport were in compliance with applicable requirements, effective April 26, 2005, which was published in the Federal Register, Volume 70, No. 89, page 24671, on May 10, 2005. The proposed noise compatibility program will be approved or disapproved on or before December 17, 2006. EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the start of FAA’s review of the noise compatibility program is June 20, 2006. The public comment period ends August 21, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Ciesla, Federal Aviation Administration, Western-Pacific Region, Airports Division, P.O. Box 92007, Los Angeles, California, 90009–2007, Telephone: (310) 725–3633. Comments on the proposed noise compatibility program should also be submitted to the above office. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program for McClellanPalomar Airport, which will be approved or disapproved on or before December 17, 2006. This notice also announces the availability of this program for public review and comment. 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 reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:30 Jun 29, 2006 Jkt 208001 introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for McClellan-Palomar Airport, effective on June 20, 2006. The airport operator has requested that the FAA review this material 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 47504 of the Act. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to FAR Part 150 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 December 17, 2006. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions 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 or create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, and whether they are reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing noncompatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments relating to these factors, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities, will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. Copies of the noise exposure maps and the proposed noise compatibility program are available for examination at the following locations: Federal Aviation Administration, Western-Pacific Region, Airports Division, Room 3024, 15000 Aviation Boulevard, Hawthorne, California 90261. Mr. Peter Drinkwater, Airports Director, Department of Public Works, County Airports, 1960 Joe Crosson Drive, El Cajon, California 92020. Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the heading, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Issued in Hawthorne, California, on June 20, 2006. Mark A. McClardy, Manager, Airports Division, AWP–600, Western-Pacific Region.
