Download as PDF 12404 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 44 / Monday, March 7, 2011 / Notices srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES environmental impacts of recurring activities and proposed future actions at Wallops Flight Facility (WFF). Under the Proposed Action in the 2005 EA, NASA would construct new facilities, demolish old facilities, and improve existing facilities at WFF. In addition, NASA would expand operations at WFF while continuing existing operations. Operations activities considered in the 2005 EA included rocket launches of multiple vehicle types, including the Pegasus vehicle, among other flightrelated activities. Under the FAA’s Proposed Action as stated in the FONSI, the FAA would renew a Launch Operator License to Orbital Sciences Corporation for the continued operation of Pegasus expendable launch vehicles at WFF. A launch operator license would authorize launches of Pegasus vehicles over the 5-year term of the license. In accordance with the requirements of FAA Order 1050.1E, Change 1, paragraph 410, the FAA has independently evaluated the information contained in the 2005 EA and has verified the continued validity of the analysis contained in the EA. The FAA has determined that the 2005 EA sufficiently addresses the concerns of the FAA and complies with FAA requirements for implementing NEPA as stated in FAA Order 1050.1E, Change 1. The FAA has determined that there is no new information or analysis that would require preparation of a new or supplemental EA or Environmental Impact Statement according to the CEQ Regulations (40 CFR 1502.9(c)(1)). Therefore, the FAA issues the FONSI concurring with the analysis of impacts and findings in the 2005 EA and formally adopts the EA in compliance with the requirements 40 CFR 1506.3 to support renewing a Launch Operator License to Orbital Sciences Corporation for the continued operation of Pegasus expendable launch vehicles at WFF. The 2005 EA is incorporated by reference and is summarized as necessary in the FONSI. NASA has posted the 2005 EA on the internet at https://sites.wff.nasa.gov/code250/docs/ Final%20Site-Wide%20EA.pdf.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure maps submitted for Jackson-Evers International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective February 18, 2011. Under 49 U.S.C. 47503 of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’), an airport operator may submit to the FAA noise exposure maps which meet applicable regulations and which 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 noise exposure maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses.

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.

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 noise exposure maps. 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 those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 47503 of the Act.

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Jackson 
Municipal Airport Authority for Jackson-Evers International Airport 
under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (Aviation Safety and 
Noise Abatement Act) 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 February 18, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonathan Linquist, Federal Aviation 
Administration, Jackson Airports District Office, 100 West Cross 
Street, Suite B, Jackson, Mississippi 39208-2307, (601) 664-9893.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for Jackson-Evers International 
Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, 
effective February 18, 2011. Under 49 U.S.C. 47503 of the Aviation 
Safety and Noise Abatement Act (hereinafter referred to as ``the 
Act''), an airport operator may submit to the FAA noise exposure maps 
which meet applicable regulations and which 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 noise exposure maps that are found 
by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation 
Regulations (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit 
a noise compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the 
measures the operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing 
non-compatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional non-
compatible uses.
    The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and 
accompanying documentation

FAA has determined that these noise exposure maps and accompanying 
documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This 
determination is effective on February 18, 2011.
    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 47503 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 47506 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 noise exposure maps. 
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 those maps, 
or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which 
consultation is required under section 47503 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
