Noise Exposure Map Notice; Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Manchester, NH, 77693-77694 [2010-31178]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 238 / Monday, December 13, 2010 / Notices Decision On November 4, 2010, the TVA Board approved the plan as described in Preferred Alternative C of the FEIS. TVA believes that implementation of Alternative C provides suitable opportunities for developed recreation, conservation of natural resources, and management of sensitive resources. This decision incorporates mitigation measures that would further minimize the potential for adverse impacts to the environment. These measures are listed below. Environmentally Preferred Alternative The Environmentally Preferred Alternative is Alternative C, under which approximately half of reservoir lands are allocated to Natural Resource Conservation (Zone 4) and Sensitive Resource Management (Zone 3) uses. All parcels with identified sensitive resources are allocated to Zone 3, which allows the least opportunity for land disturbance and is, therefore, the most protective land use zone. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 Mitigation Measures TVA is adopting the following measures to minimize environmental impacts: • TVA has executed a programmatic agreement (PA) with the Tennessee State Historic Preservation Officer for reservoir land management plans (RLMPs) for the identification, evaluation, and treatment of all cultural resources adversely affected by future proposed uses of TVA lands planned in RLMPs. All activities will be conducted in accordance with the stipulations defined in this PA. • As necessary, based on the findings of any site-specific environmental review, TVA may require the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, including best management practices as defined in TVA’s ‘‘General and Standard Conditions/Best Management Practices,’’ as a condition of approval for use of TVA land. • Landscaping activities on developed properties will not include the use of plants listed as Rank 1 (Severe Threat), Rank 2 (Significant Threat), or Rank 3 (Lesser Threat) on the Tennessee Exotic Plant Pest Council List of Invasive Exotic Pest Plants in Tennessee. • Revegetation and erosion-control work will utilize seed mixes comprised of native species or noninvasive nonnative species. With the implementation of the above measures, TVA has determined that adverse environmental impacts of future VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:42 Dec 10, 2010 Jkt 223001 land development proposals on the TVA-managed reservoir lands would be substantially reduced. Before taking actions that could result in adverse environmental effects or before authorizing such actions to occur on properties it controls, TVA would perform a site-specific environmental review to determine the need for other necessary mitigation measures or precautions. These protective measures represent all of the practicable measures to avoid or minimize environmental harm associated with the alternative adopted by the TVA Board. Dated: December 6, 2010. Anda A. Ray, Senior Vice President, Environment and Technology.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps for Manchester-Boston 
Regional Airport, as submitted by the City of Manchester, New 
Hampshire, 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 maps is December 3, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lisa J. Lesperance or Richard 
Doucette, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region, Airports 
Division, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for Manchester-Boston Regional 
Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, 
effective December 3, 2010.
    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 the City of Manchester, New 
Hampshire. The specific maps under consideration were Figure 4.2-1, and 
Figure 4.3-1 in the submission. The FAA has determined that these maps 
for Manchester-Boston Regional Airport are in compliance with 
applicable requirements. This determination is effective on December 3, 
2010.
    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.

the maps are available for examination at the following locations:
