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.

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.

ACTION: Notice of Availability of Final General Conformity Determination. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the FAA announces the availability of the Final General Conformity Determination for Operations of Southwest Airlines Co. (Southwest) at Denver International Airport (DEN). FAA has determined that emissions from Southwest’s operations at DEN conform to the Colorado State Implementation Plan (SIP). In accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR 93.156 (b), the Draft Conformity Determination, Proposed Operations of Southwest Airlines Co. at Denver International Airport, Denver, CO was made available for public review beginning April 21, 2006. Notice of the draft determination was published in the Rocky Mountain News, Denver, Colorado on April 21, 2006, and copies of the draft determination were made available at DEN. The Notice of Draft General Conformity Determination was published in the Federal 1Register on April 27, 2006 (71 FR 24903). No comments were submitted during the public comment period, which ended on May 30, 2006. Consequently, the Final General Conformity Determination consists of the Draft General Conformity Determination, with the following typographical corrections. The corrections are needed to clarify terms describing aircraft operations and to correct the reference to the maximum foreseeable aircraft activity used to predict aircraft emissions, as documented in Table 1. 1. Page 24903, last sentence on this page under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION shall be revised to read: ‘‘At that time Southwest indicated an interest in increasing service to as many as 50 or 60 daily landing/take-off cycles (LTOs) at DEN, but agreed to maintain * * *’’ 2. Page 24904, second sentence of the last paragraph under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION shall be revised to read: ‘‘This General Conformity Determination addresses FAA’s proposed Federal action to amend E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1
