The Flagstaff Pulliam Airport Noise Exposure Maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on April 7, 2005. Notice of this determination was published in the Federal Register on April 20, 2005. The Flagstaff Pulliam Airport study contains a proposed noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for phased implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from May 7, 2007 to beyond the year 2012. It was requested that the FAA evaluate and approve this material as a Noise Compatibility Program as described in 49 U.S.C. 47504 (formerly Section 104(b) of the Act). The FAA began its review of the program on January 12, 2007, and was required by a provision 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 15 proposed actions for noise abatement, noise mitigation, and land use planning and program management on and off 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 was approved by the Manager of the Airports Division, Western-Pacific Region, effective June 25, 2007. Outright approval was granted for ten (10) specific program measures. The four (4) approved Noise Abatement Element measures included such items as: Runway 21 Departure Procedure for piston aircraft weighing less than 12,500 pounds; discontinue intersection and midfield takeoffs; Promote use of Industry Standard Thrust Cut-Back Procedures; Promote use of aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Noise Awareness Steps by light single and twin-engine aircraft; The three (3) approved Land Use Planning Elements include such items as: The city of Flagstaff should consider revising their current project review guidelines to incorporate noise-related criteria. it would also be suitable to include these guidelines within the Flagstaff Regional Area Land Use and Transportation Plan; the city of Flagstaff and Coconino County should consider revising its existing Airport Overlay District to reflect the results of the noise analysis conducted as part of this Part 150 Study. Additionally, Coconino County should consider enacting an VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Jul 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 Airport overlay district for areas contained within the AIA; the City of Flagstaff and Coconino County should consider amending their respective building codes to incorporate prescriptive noise standards; The three (3) approved Program Management Element measures included such items as: Publish a pilot guide; Monitor Implementation of the Part 150 Noise compatibility Program; Update Noise Exposure Maps and Noise Compatibility Program. FAA partially approved portions of the following four (4) Land Use Planning Measures: Consideration should be given to re-designated undeveloped parcels within the hybrid 60 DNL noise contour to a compatible land use designation such as commercial, industrial, or designated open space as detailed in the Flagstaff Area Regional Land Use and Transportation Plan. That portion of the ‘‘hybrid’’ contour that depicts noise from a 1991 airport master plan is disapproved for purposes of part 150; Consideration should be given to incorporating hybrid 60 and 65 DNL noise contours into the general plan in lieu of the currently referenced noise contours prepared in the Flagstaff Area Regional Land Use and Transportation Plan; The City of Flagstaff and Coconino County maintain compatibility—zoned areas within the 60 DNL noise contour; That portion of the ‘‘hybrid’’ contour that depicts noise from a 1991 airport master plan is disapproved for purposes of part 150; The City of Flagstaff and Coconino County should rezone undeveloped parcels within the hybrid 60 DNL noise contour to a compatible zoning designation; That portion of the ‘‘hybrid’’ contour that depicts noise from a 1991 airport master plan is disapproved for purposes of part 150; The FAA disapproved one (1) Noise Abatement measure: Change Phoenix Sectional Chart to depict the location of Walnut Canyon National Monument. These determinations are set forth in detail in the Record of Approval signed by the Manager of the Airports Division, Western-Pacific Region, on June 25, 2007.
