Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. Where federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Regional Office in Fort Worth, Texas. The Lafayette Airport Commission submitted to the FAA on November 29, 2011 the noise exposure maps, descriptions, and other documentation produced during the noise compatibility planning study conducted from August 14, 2013 through August 6, 2014. The Lafayette Regional Airport noise exposure maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on April 4, 2012. Notice of this determination was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2012. The Lafayette Regional Airport study contains a proposed noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for phased implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from August 6, 2014 to the year 2017. It was requested that the FAA evaluate and approve this material as a noise compatibility program as described in section 47504 of the Act. The FAA began its review of the program on May 25, 2015 and was required by a provision of the Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180 days (other than the use of new or modified flight procedures for noise control). Failure to approve or disapprove such program within the 180-day period shall be deemed to be an approval of such program. The submitted program contained two proposed actions for noise mitigation off the airport. The FAA completed its review and determined that the procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and FAR Part 150 have been satisfied. The overall program, therefore, was approved by the FAA effective November 23, 2015. Outright approval was granted for both of the specific program elements. A preventive land use mitigation measure would offer owners of vacant residential VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:17 Mar 02, 2016 Jkt 238001 parcels located within the existing DNL 65 contour the opportunity to participate in the Avigation Easement Acquisition Program. A remedial measure would offer owners of residential properties located within the DNL 65 contour the opportunity to participate in the Avigation Easement Acquisition Program. These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of Approval signed by the FAA Southwest Region Airports Division Manager on November 23, 2015. The Record of Approval, as well as other evaluation materials and the documents comprising the submittal, are available for review at the FAA office listed above and at the administrative offices of the Lafayette Airport Commission. The Record of Approval also will be available on-line at http://www.faa.gov/arp/ environmental/14cfr150/index14.cfm. Issued in Fort Worth, Texas, February 4, 2016.
