ACTION: Notice sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its findings on the Noise Compatibility Program submitted by the Jacksonville Airport Authority under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’) and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96–52 (1980). On December 22, 2006, the FAA determined that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Jacksonville Airport Authority under Part 150 were in compliance with applicable requirements. On May 14, 2007, the FAA approved the Craig Municipal Airport noise compatibility program. All of the recommendations of the program were approved. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA’s approval of the Craig Municipal Airport Noise Compatibility Program is May 14, 2007.

Documents reflecting this FAA action may be reviewed at this same location. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given its overall approval to the Noise Compatibility Program for Craig Municipal Airport, effective May 14, 2007. Under Section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has previously submitted a Noise Exposure Map may submit to the FAA a Noise Compatibility Program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:45 May 25, 2007 Jkt 211001 land uses within the area covered by the Noise Exposure Maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties including local communities, government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel. Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program, not a Federal Program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport operator with respect to which measure should be recommended for action. The FAA’s approval or disapproval of FAR Part 150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in FAR part 150 and the Act, and is limited to the following determinations; a. The Noise Compatibility Program was developed in accordance with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150; b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types of classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the Federal government; and d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator prescribed by law. Specific limitations with respect to FAA’s approval of an airport Noise Compatibility Program are delineated in FAR Part 150, Section 150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FAA. Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Airports District Office in Orlando, Florida. Jacksonville Airport Authority submitted to the FAA on February 14, 2006, the Noise Exposure Maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced during the noise compatibility planning study conducted from August 2004, through November 2005. The Craig Municipal Airport Noise Exposure Maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on December 22, 2006. Notice of the determination was published in the Federal Register on December 22, 2006. The Craig Municipal Airport study contains a proposed Noise Compatibility Program comprised of actions designed for phased implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from the year 2006 to the year 2009. It was requested that FAA evaluate and approve this material as a Noise Compatibility Program as described in Section 47504 of the Act. The FAA began its review of the Program on December 22, 2006, and was required by a provisions of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180-days (other than the use of new or modified flight procedures for noise control). Failure to approve or disapprove such program within the 180-day period shall be deemed to be an approval of such program. The submitted program contained nine (9) proposed actions for noise mitigation on the airport. The FAA completed its review and determined that the procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and FAR part 150 have been satisfied. The overall program, therefore, was approved by the FAA effective May 14, 2007. Outright approval was granted for eight of the specific program elements. Operational measure number five (5) was approved in part and does not extend to the use of monitoring equipment for enforcement of any voluntary measure. These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of Approval signed by the FAA on May 14, 2007.

ACTION: Notice

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
findings on the Noise Compatibility Program submitted by the 
Jacksonville Airport Authority under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. (the 
Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as 
``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in 
recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal 
responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). On December 22, 
2006, the FAA determined that the noise exposure maps submitted by the 
Jacksonville Airport Authority under Part 150 were in compliance with 
applicable requirements. On May 14, 2007, the FAA approved the Craig 
Municipal Airport noise compatibility program. All of the 
recommendations of the program were approved.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's approval of the 
Craig Municipal Airport Noise Compatibility Program is May 14, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lindy McDowell, Federal Aviation 
Administration, Orlando Airports District Office, 5950 Hazeltine 
National Dr., Suite 400, Orlando, Florida 32822-5024, phone number: 
407-812-6331. Documents reflecting this FAA action may be reviewed at 
this same location.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given 
its overall approval to the Noise Compatibility Program for Craig 
Municipal Airport, effective May 14, 2007.
    Under Section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has 
previously submitted a Noise Exposure Map may submit to the FAA a Noise 
Compatibility Program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed 
by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible 
land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within 
the area covered by the Noise Exposure Maps. The Act requires such 
programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected 
parties including local communities, government agencies, airport 
users, and FAA personnel.
    Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance 
with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program, 
not a Federal Program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for 
that of the airport operator with respect to which measure should be 
recommended for action. The FAA's approval or disapproval of FAR Part 
150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards 
expressed in FAR part 150 and the Act, and is limited to the following 
determinations;
    a. The Noise Compatibility Program was developed in accordance with 
the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150;
    b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the 
goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport 
and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses;
    c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate 
or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types of classes of 
aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or 
intrude into areas preempted by the Federal government; and
    d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be 
implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating 
safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the 
navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely 
affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator 
prescribed by law.
    Specific limitations with respect to FAA's approval of an airport 
Noise Compatibility Program are delineated in FAR Part 150, Section 
150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of 
land uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by 
itself constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal 
action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures 
may be required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an 
environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not 
constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the 
implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures 
covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the 
FAA. Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must 
be submitted to the FAA Airports District Office in Orlando, Florida.
    Jacksonville Airport Authority submitted to the FAA on February 14, 
2006, the Noise Exposure Maps, descriptions, and other documentation 
produced during the noise compatibility planning study conducted from 
August 2004, through November 2005. The Craig Municipal Airport Noise 
Exposure Maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with 
applicable requirements on December 22, 2006. Notice of the 
determination was published in the Federal Register on December 22, 
2006.
    The Craig Municipal Airport study contains a proposed Noise 
Compatibility Program comprised of actions designed for phased 
implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from 
the year 2006 to the year 2009. It was requested that FAA evaluate and 
approve this material as a Noise Compatibility Program as described in 
Section 47504 of the Act. The FAA began its review of the Program on 
December 22, 2006, and was required by a provisions of the Act to 
approve or disapprove the program within 180-days (other than the use 
of new or modified flight procedures for noise control). Failure to 
approve or disapprove such program within the 180-day period shall be 
deemed to be an approval of such program.
    The submitted program contained nine (9) proposed actions for noise 
mitigation on the airport. The FAA completed its review and determined 
that the procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and FAR 
part 150 have been satisfied. The overall program, therefore, was 
approved by the FAA effective May 14, 2007.
    Outright approval was granted for eight of the specific program 
elements. Operational measure number five (5) was approved in part and 
does not extend to the use of monitoring equipment for enforcement of 
any voluntary measure.
    These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of 
Approval signed by the FAA on May 14, 2007. 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 Jacksonville Airport Authority. The 
Record of Approval also will be available on-line at: http://
