Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 98 / Friday, May 20, 2016 / Notices to acquire additional rail lines for the purpose of making a connection; and (3) each of the carriers involved in the continuance in control transaction is a Class III carrier. Therefore, the transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than May 27, 2016 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36003, must be filed with Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on James H.M. Savage, 22 Rockingham Court, Germantown, MD 20874. Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at WWW.STB.DOT.GOV. Decided: May 17, 2016. By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings. Tia Delano, Clearance Clerk.

(Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’)) and 14 CFR part 150 (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Part 150’’) are in compliance with applicable requirements. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA’s compliance determination on the NEMs is April 12, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Aaron Braswell, Federal Aviation Administration, Memphis Airports District Office, 2600 Thousand Oaks Blvd., Suite 2250, Memphis, TN 38118, 901–322–8192. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the NEMs submitted for the Charlotte Douglas International Airport Airport (CLT) are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective April 12, 2016. Under the Act, an airport operator (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Sponsor’’) may submit to the FAA NEMs which meet applicable regulations and which depict noncompatible 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 that the Sponsor develop its NEMs in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. The FAA has relied on the certification by the City of Charlotte, under § 150.21 of Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. An airport Sponsor who has submitted NEMs that are found by the FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Part 150 may submit a Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the Sponsor 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 NEMs and accompanying documentation submitted by City of Charlotte. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘NEMs’’ as defined in § 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Exhibit 3– 1, Existing (2015) Noise Contour; Exhibit 4–1, Future (2020) Noise Contour; Exhibit C–11, Runway 18L Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–12, Runway 18C Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–13, Runway 18R Flight Tracks; Exhibit C– 14, Runway 36R Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–15, Runway 36C Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–16, Runway 36L Flight PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32005 Tracks; Exhibit C–17, Runway 05 Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–18, Runway 23 Flight Tracks; Exhibit C–19, Helicopter Flight Tracks; Table C–1, Distribution of Average Daily Operations by Aircraft Category Existing (2015) Conditions; Table C–2, Runway End Utilization— Existing (2015) Conditions; Table C–3, Arrival Flight Track Utilization Percentages Existing (2015) and Future (2020) Conditions; Table C–4, Departure Flight Track Utilization Percentages Existing (2015) and Future (2020) Conditions; Table C–5, Departure Trip Length Distribution Existing (2015) Conditions; Table C–6, Aircraft Engine Run-Ups—Existing (2015) Conditions; Table C–7, Distribution of Average Daily Operations by Aircraft Type Future (2020) Conditions; Table C–8, Departure Trip Length Distribution—Future (2020) Conditions; Table C–9, Ground Run-Up Operations—Future (2020) Conditions; Appendix F. The FAA has determined that these NEMs and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on April 12, 2016. FAA’s determination on the airport Sponsor’s NEMs is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of Part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the Sponsor’s data, information, or plans, and is not a commitment to approve a NCP 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 NEM submitted under § 47503 of the Act, it is emphasized that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise exposure contours, or in interpreting the NEMs to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of § 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government and remain unchanged by FAA’s NEM compliance determination under Part 150. The responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport Sponsor that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under § 47503 of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 3, 2016, the FAA published a notice titled ‘‘Notice of Proposed Policy Amendment and Request for Comments’’ (81 FR 26611). In that Notice, the FAA proposed to change the policy regarding the Passenger Facility Charge eligibility of ground access projects meeting certain criteria. The notice requested that interested parties submit written comments by June 2, 2016. On May 11, 2016, the Airports Council International—North America (ACI–NA), the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), and Airlines for America (A4A) submitted a request to extend the comment period by 30 days because additional time is needed to conduct the necessary research and assess the alternatives that the FAA proposes and also consolidate comments from their respective members. After careful consideration of the schedule constraints, the FAA has decided to extend the comment period for 15 days until June 17, 2016. The FAA expects that the additional time for comments will allow the affected community to prepare meaningful comments which will help the FAA to consider an amendment to FAA’s airport ground access transportation policy for PFC funding.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the NEMs submitted for the Charlotte Douglas International Airport 
Airport (CLT) are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 
150, effective April 12, 2016. Under the Act, an airport operator 
(hereinafter referred to as ``Sponsor'') may submit to the FAA NEMs 
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 that the Sponsor develop its 
NEMs in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local 
community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. The FAA 
has relied on the certification by the City of Charlotte, under Sec.  
150.21 of Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been 
accomplished.
    An airport Sponsor who has submitted NEMs that are found by the FAA 
to be in compliance with the requirements of Part 150 may submit a 
Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) for FAA approval which sets forth the 
measures the Sponsor 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 NEMs and accompanying 
documentation submitted by City of Charlotte. The documentation that 
constitutes the ``NEMs'' as defined in Sec.  150.7 of Part 150 
includes: Exhibit 3-1, Existing (2015) Noise Contour; Exhibit 4-1,

determined that these NEMs and accompanying documentation are in 
compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is 
effective on April 12, 2016.
    FAA's determination on the airport Sponsor's NEMs is limited to a 
finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures 
contained in Appendix A of Part 150. Such determination does not 
constitute approval of the Sponsor's data, information, or plans, and 
is not a commitment to approve a NCP 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 NEM 
submitted under Sec.  47503 of the Act, it is emphasized that the FAA 
is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of 
specific properties with regard to the depicted noise exposure 
contours, or in interpreting the NEMs to resolve questions concerning, 
for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of 
Sec.  47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the 
ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local 
government and remain unchanged by FAA's NEM compliance determination 
under Part 150. The responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise 
exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface 
rests exclusively with the airport Sponsor that submitted those maps, 
or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which 
consultation is required under Sec.  47503 of the Act.
