SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given its overall approval to the Noise Compatibility Program for Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, effective June 25, 2007. Under section 104(a) of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979, as amended (herein after referred to as the ‘‘Act’’) [recodified as 49 U.S.C. 47504], as airport operator who has previously submitted as 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 proprietor with respect to which measures 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reducing existing non-compatible land uses around in airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; c. Program measurs would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes or aeronatucial 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 limitation 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 under the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982, as amended. Where federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Airports District Office in Hawthorne, California. The City of Flagstaff submitted to the FAA on July 21, 2004, the Noise Exposure Maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced during the noise compatibility planning study E:\FR\FM\24JYN1.SGM 24JYN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 40356 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 141 / Tuesday, July 24, 2007 / Notices conducted from March 4, 2004 through January 12, 2007. 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.

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

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

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 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
