L. 96–193) and 14 CFR Part 150, are in compliance with applicable requirements. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA’s determination on the noise exposure map is October 8, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John C. Silva, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region, Airports Division, ANE–600, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts 01803. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure map submitted for Providence-T.F. Green Airport is in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective October 8, 2008. 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 noise exposure maps that meet applicable regulations and that depict non-compatible land uses as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps 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 such noise exposure maps that are 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 that sets forth the measures the operator has taken, or proposes, for the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure map and related descriptions submitted by RIAC on September 5, 2008. The specific map under consideration is ‘‘Figure 0.0–0, Airport Improvement Program EIS, 2020, No-Action Day-Night Noise Level (DNL) Contours.’’ The FAA has determined that this map for Providence-T.F. Green Airport is in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on October 8, 2008. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 maps 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 airport operator, under Section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Copies of the noise exposure maps and of the FAA’s evaluation of the maps are available for examination at the following locations: Providence-T.F.

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure map for Providence-T.F. Green 
Airport, as submitted by the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) 
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, are in 
compliance with applicable requirements.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's determination on 
the noise exposure map is October 8, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John C. Silva, Federal Aviation 
Administration, New England Region, Airports Division, ANE-600, 12 New 
England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts 01803.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure map submitted for Providence-T.F. Green Airport 
is in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective 
October 8, 2008.
    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 noise exposure maps that meet 
applicable regulations and that depict non-compatible land uses as of 
the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected 
aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect 
such maps. The Act requires such maps 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 such noise exposure maps that 
are 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 that 
sets forth the measures the operator has taken, or proposes, for the 
introduction of additional non-compatible uses.
    The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure map and 
related descriptions submitted by RIAC on September 5, 2008. The 
specific map under consideration is ``Figure 0.0-0, Airport Improvement 
Program EIS, 2020, No-Action Day-Night Noise Level (DNL) Contours.'' 
The FAA has determined that this map for Providence-T.F. Green Airport 
is in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is 
effective on October 8, 2008.
    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 maps 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 airport operator, under Section 
150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has 
been accomplished.
    Copies of the noise exposure maps and of the FAA's evaluation of 
the maps are available for examination at the following locations:
