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 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 Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. The FAA has formally received the Noise Compatibility Program for Boise Air Terminal (Gowen Field) Airport, also effective on May 2, 2016. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the submittal of Noise Compatibility Programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before October 29, 2016. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of Part 150, Section 150.33. The primary considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing non-compatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities, will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. Copies of the full Noise Exposure Map documentation and the proposed Noise Compatibility Program are available for examination at the following locations: Scott Eaton, Community Planner, Federal Aviation Administration, Helena Airports District Office, FAA Building, Ste. 2, 2725 Skyway Drive, Helena, MT 59602, 406–449–5291.

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. The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation submitted by the Susquehanna Regional Airport Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: 2015 Base Year NEM Figure (3–1) and 2020 Future Year NEM Figure (4–1). The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and forecast information, including the depiction of the airport and its boundaries, the runway configurations, and land uses such as residential, open space, commercial/office, community facilities, libraries, churches, open space, infrastructure, vacant and warehouse and those areas within the Day Night Average Sound Level (DNL) 65, 70 and 75 noise contours. Estimates for the area within these contours for the 2015 Base Year are shown in Table 3–1 and Table 4–1; and in Chapters 3 and 4 of the NEM. Estimates of the future residential population within the 2020 Future Year noise contours are shown in Table 4–1 and in Chapter 4 of the NEM.

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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:33 May 09, 2016 Jkt 238001 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.

Middletown, Pennsylvania

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Susquehanna 
Regional Airport Authority for Harrisburg 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 May 3, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Harrisburg Airports District Office 
(HAR ADO), Susan L. McDonald, Environmental Protection Specialist,

508, Camp Hill, PA 17011, Telephone: (717) 730-2830.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for the Harrisburg International 
Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of 14 CFR part 
150, effective January 13, 2004. Under 49 U.S.C. Section 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 during a forecast period that is at least five (5) years in 
the future, 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 submitted by the Susquehanna Regional 
Airport Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise 
Exposure Maps'' (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: 
2015 Base Year NEM Figure (3-1) and 2020 Future Year NEM Figure (4-1). 
The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and forecast information, 
including the depiction of the airport and its boundaries, the runway 
configurations, and land uses such as residential, open space, 
commercial/office, community facilities, libraries, churches, open 
space, infrastructure, vacant and warehouse and those areas within the 
Day Night Average Sound Level (DNL) 65, 70 and 75 noise contours. 
Estimates for the area within these contours for the 2015 Base Year are 
shown in Table 3-1 and Table 4-1; and in Chapters 3 and 4 of the NEM. 
Estimates of the future residential population within the 2020 Future 
Year noise contours are shown in Table 4-1 and in Chapter 4 of the NEM. 
Appendix E, Figure E-1, displays the location of noise monitoring 
sites. Flight tracks for the existing and the five-year forecast Noise 
Exposure Maps are found in Chapter 2 and Appendix F. The type and 
frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime operations) are 
found in Appendix F, Tables F-1 through and F-3. The FAA has determined 
that these noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in 
compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is 
effective on May 3, 2016.
    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 noise exposure map documentation and of the 
FAA's evaluation of the maps are available for examination at the 
following locations:
