Also, modifications that allow utilities on the civil airport to operate independently, where other portions of the base are conveyed to entities other than the airport sponsor or retained by the Government. • Purchase, rehabilitation, or modification of airport and airport support facilities and equipment, including snow removal, aircraft rescue, fire fighting buildings and equipment, airport security, lighting vaults, and reconfiguration or relocation of eligible buildings for more efficient civil airport operations. • Modification of airport or military airfield fuel systems and fuel farms to accommodate civil aviation use. • Acquisition of additional land for runway protection zones, other approach protection, or airport development. • Cargo facility requirements. • Modifications, which will permit the airfield to accommodate general aviation users. Landside • Construction of surface parking areas and access roads to accommodate automobiles in the airport terminal and air cargo areas and provide an adequate level of access to the airport. • Construction or relocation of access roads to provide efficient and convenient movement of vehicular traffic to, on, and from the airport, including access to passenger, air cargo, fixed base operations, and aircraft maintenance areas. • Modification or construction of facilities such as passenger terminals, surface automobile parking lots, hangars, air cargo terminal buildings, and access roads to cargo facilities to accommodate civil use. (6) An evaluation of the ability of surface transportation facilities (road, rail, high-speed rail, maritime) to provide intermodal connections. (7) A description of the type and level of aviation and community interest in the civil use of a current or former military airport. (8) One copy of the FAA-approved ALP for each copy of the application. The ALP or supporting information should clearly show capacity and conversion related projects. Other VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:29 Sep 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 information such as project costs, schedule, project justification, other maps and drawings showing the project locations, and any other supporting documentation that would make the application easier to understand should also be included. You may also provide photos, which would further describe the airport, projects, and otherwise clarify certain aspects of this application. These maps and ALP’s should be cross-referenced with the project costs and project descriptions. Redesignation of Airports Previously Designated and Applying for Up to an Additional Five Years in the Program Airports applying for redesignation to the Military Airport Program must submit the same information required by new candidate airports applying for a new designation. On the SF 424, Application for Federal Assistance, prescribed by the Office of Management and Budget Circular A–102, airports must indicate their application is for redesignation to the MAP. In addition to the information required for new candidates, airports requesting redesignation must also explain: (1) Why a redesignation and additional MAP eligible project funding is needed to accomplish the conversion to meet the civil role of the airport and the preferred time period for redesignation not, to exceed five years; (2) Why funding of eligible work under other categories of AIP or other sources of funding would not accomplish the development needs of the airport; and (3) Why, based on the previously funded MAP projects, the projects and/ or funding level were insufficient to accomplish the airport conversion needs and development goals. In addition to the information requested above, airports applying for redesignation must provide a reanalysis of their original business/marketing plans (for example, a plan previously funded by the Office of Economic Adjustment or the original Master Plan for the airport) and prepare a report. If there is no existing business/marketing plan a business/marketing plan or strategy must be developed. The report must contain: (1) Whether the original business/ marketing plan is still appropriate; (2) Is the airport continuing to work towards the goals established in the business/marketing plan; (3) Discuss how the MAP projects contained in the application contribute to the goals of the sponsor and their plans; and (4) If the business/marketing plan no longer applies to the current goals of the PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 airport, how has the airport altered the business/marketing plan to establish a new direction for the facility and how do the projects contained in the MAP application aid in the completion of the new direction and goals and by what date does the sponsor anticipate graduating from the MAP.

Affected Public: Passenger vehicle tire consumers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), enacted in December 2007, included a requirement that NHTSA develop a national tire fuel efficiency program to educate consumers about the effect of tires on automobile fuel efficiency, safety and durability. A critical step in developing the consumer information program is to conduct proper market research to understand consumers’ knowledge of tire maintenance and performance, understand the tire purchase process from both the consumer and retailer’s perspectives, evaluate comprehension of ratings, explore the clarity, meaningfulness and the likely resulting behaviors, and evaluate the informational and educational materials and the channels for communication. NHTSA proposed a dual-phased research project to gather the data and apply analyses and results from the project to develop the consumer information program. Phase 1 has been completed and the final reports from this phase have been posted to this docket. The Phase 2 research plan, resulting from Phase 1 data and analyses, is posted to this docket.

NHTSA completed qualitative research that included two phases— focus groups and retailer interviews. The reports from each of those phases informed the questions that are included in this quantitative research phase. NHTSA will conduct this research via an online survey that will be administered once. The online survey will take approximately 15 minutes for respondents to complete and will require 4,000 general population participants and up to an additional 1,200 respondents for the tire purchaser oversample. The total burden hours for this survey is 1,300 hours (5,200 participants × 15 min). The estimated annual burden hour for the online survey is 1,300 hours. Based on the Bureau of Labor and Statistics’ median hourly wage (all occupations) in the May 2010 National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates, NHTSA estimates that it would cost an average of $16.27 per hour if all respondents were interviewed on the job. Therefore, the agency estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $21,151 ($16.27 per hour × 1,300 interviewing hours). Issued on: September 16, 2011. Gregory A. Walter, Senior Associate Administrator, Policy and Operations. [FR Doc. 2011–24310 Filed 9–21–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–59–P E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1
