ACTION: Notice. pwalker on PRODPC60 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure map for Danbury Municipal Airport, as submitted by the City of Danbury under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96–193) and 14 CFR Part 150, is in compliance with applicable VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Sep 18, 2006 Jkt 208001 requirements. The FAA also announces that it is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program that was submitted for Danbury Municipal Airport under Part 150 in conjunction with the noise exposure map, and that this program will be approved or disapproved on or before March 9, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: The effective date of the FAA’s determination on the noise exposure map and of the start of its review of the associated noise compatibility program is September 6, 2006. The public comment period ends on November 6, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John C. Silva, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region, Airports Division, ANE–600, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, MA 01803. Comments on the proposed noise compatibility program should also be submitted to the above office. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure map submitted for Danbury Municipal Airport is in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective September 6, 2006. Further, FAA is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program for that airport which will be approved or disapproved on or before March 9, 2007. This notice also announces the availability of this program for public review and comment. Under Section 103 of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’), an airport operator may submit to the FAA a noise exposure map which meets applicable regulations and which depicts noncompatible land uses as of the date of submission of such map, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such map. The Act requires such map to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. An airport operator who has submitted a noise exposure map that is found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken, or proposes, for the introduction of additional non-compatible uses. The City of Danbury submitted to the FAA, on September 6, 2006, a noise exposure map, descriptions, and other documentation that were produced PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 during the Airport Noise Compatibility Planning (Part 150) study at Danbury Municipal airport from October 2003 to July 2006. It was requested that the FAA review this material as the noise exposure map, as described in Section 103(a)(1) of the Act, 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 104(b) of the Act. The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and related descriptions submitted by City of Danbury. The specific maps under consideration were: Danbury Airport, Part 150 Study— Noise Exposure Map: 1. Base Year 2003 Average Daily Noise Contours 2. Future Year 2008 Baseline DNL Noise Contours The FAA has determined that the maps for Danbury Municipal Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on September 6, 2006. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s noise exposure maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR 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 103 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 map to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of Section 107 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 a noise exposure map. 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 the map, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under Section 103 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the E:\FR\FM\19SEN1.SGM 19SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 181 / Tuesday, September 19, 2006 / Notices airport operator, under Section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for Danbury Municipal Airport, also effective on September 6, 2006. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the 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 March 9, 2007. 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, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing non compatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments, 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 map, the FAA’s evaluation of the map, and the proposed noise compatibility program are available for examination at the following locations: Danbury Municipal Airport, Danbury, CT.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John C. Silva, Federal Aviation 
Administration, New England Region, Airports Division, ANE-600, 12 New 
England Executive Park, Burlington, MA 01803.
    Comments on the proposed noise compatibility program should also be 
submitted to the above office.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure map submitted for Danbury Municipal Airport is 
in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective 
September 6, 2006. Further, FAA is reviewing a proposed noise 
compatibility program for that airport which will be approved or 
disapproved on or before March 9, 2007. This notice also announces the 
availability of this program for public review and comment.
    Under Section 103 of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise 
Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter referred to as ``the Act''), an 
airport operator may submit to the FAA a noise exposure map which meets 
applicable regulations and which depicts noncompatible land uses as of 
the date of submission of such map, a description of projected aircraft 
operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such map. 
The Act requires such map to be developed in consultation with 
interested and affected parties in the local community, government 
agencies, and persons using the airport. An airport operator who has 
submitted a noise exposure map that is found by FAA to be in compliance 
with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150, 
promulgated pursuant to Title I of the Act, may submit a noise 
compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures 
the operator has taken, or proposes, for the introduction of additional 
non-compatible uses.
    The City of Danbury submitted to the FAA, on September 6, 2006, a 
noise exposure map, descriptions, and other documentation that were 
produced during the Airport Noise Compatibility Planning (Part 150) 
study at Danbury Municipal airport from October 2003 to July 2006. It 
was requested that the FAA review this material as the noise exposure 
map, as described in Section 103(a)(1) of the Act, 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 104(b) of the Act.
    The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and 
related descriptions submitted by City of Danbury. The specific maps 
under consideration were:
    Danbury Airport, Part 150 Study--Noise Exposure Map:
    1. Base Year 2003 Average Daily Noise Contours
    2. Future Year 2008 Baseline DNL Noise Contours
    The FAA has determined that the maps for Danbury Municipal Airport 
are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is 
effective on September 6, 2006.
    FAA's determination on an airport operator's noise exposure maps is 
limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with 
the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR 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 103 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 map to resolve questions concerning, 
for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of 
Section 107 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 a noise exposure map. 
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 the map, or 
with those public agencies and planning agencies with which 
consultation is required under Section 103 of the Act. The FAA has 
relied on the certification by the

[[Page 54867]]

airport operator, under Section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the 
statutorily required consultation has been accomplished.
    The FAA has formally received the noise compatibility program for 
Danbury Municipal Airport, also effective on September 6, 2006. 
Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms 
to the 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 March 9, 2007. 
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, create an undue burden on interstate or 
foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal 
of reducing existing non compatible land uses and preventing the 
introduction of additional non-compatible land uses.
    Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program 
with specific reference to these factors. All comments, 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 map, the FAA's evaluation of the map, and the proposed noise 
compatibility program are available for examination at the following 
locations:

Danbury Municipal Airport, Danbury, CT.
