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.

Protection Specialist, CHI-603, Federal Aviation Administration, 
Chicago Airport District Office, 2300 East Devon Avenue, Des Plaines, 
IL 60018. Telephone number: 847-294-7354.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the updated noise exposure maps submitted for Indianapolis 
International Airport (IND) are in compliance with applicable 
requirements of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 150, 
effective (Note 1). 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 14 CFR 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 updated noise exposure maps 
and accompanying documentation submitted by Indianapolis International 
Airport (IND). The documentation that constitutes the ``noise exposure 
maps'' as defined in section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Exhibit NEM-1, 
Existing (2013) Noise Exposure Map; Exhibit NEM-2, Future (2018) Noise 
Exposure Map; Table 1, Distribution of Average Daily Operations by 
Aircraft Type Existing (2013) Conditions; Exhibit 2, Noise Abatement 
Flight Paths (Day--7:00AM to 7:00PM); Exhibit 3, Noise Abatement Flight 
Paths (Evening and Night--7:00PM to 7:00AM); Exhibit 4, North Flow 
Large Passenger Jet INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 5, North Flow Large 
Cargo Jet INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 6, North Flow Regional/Air Taxi 
Jet INM Flight Tracks;
    Exhibit 7, North Flow Propeller Aircraft INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 
8, South Flow Large Passenger Jet INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 9, South 
Flow Large Cargo Jet INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 10, South Flow 
Regional/Air Taxi Jet INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 11, South Flow 
Propeller Aircraft INM Flight Tracks; Exhibit 12, Existing (2013) Noise 
Exposure Contour; Exhibit 13, Existing (2013) Noise Exposure Contour 
Compared to (Previous) Future 2008 NEM/NCP (from 2008 Update); Exhibit 
14, INM Grid Point Locations; Exhibit 15, Future (2018) Noise Exposure 
Contour; Exhibit 16, Future (2018) Noise Exposure Contour compared to 
Existing (2013) Noise Exposure Contour; and Exhibit 17, Completed Land 
Use and Environmental Mitigation Program Boundaries.
    The FAA has determined that these updated noise exposure maps and 
accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable 
requirements. This determination is effective on April 3, 2014. 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 
been accomplished.
    Copies of the full updated noise exposure map documentation and of 
the FAA's evaluation of the maps are available for examination, upon 
prior appointment during normal business hours, at the following
