SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the request to change approximately 15.42± acres of airport property at the Marshall Memorial Municipal Airport (MHL) from aeronautical use to nonaeronautical use for revenue producing. The parcel of land is located along the North line of Fairground Road. This parcel will be used for a solar farm. The land will be leased to MC Power for the solar farm. No airport landside or airside facilities are presently located on this parcel, nor are airport developments contemplated in the future. Farming is the current use of the surface of the parcel. The parcel will serve as a revenue producing lot with the proposed change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical. The request submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the change to nonaeronautical status of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this Notice. The following is a brief overview of the request: The Marshall Memorial Municipal Airport (MHL) is proposing the release of one parcel, of 15.42 acres, more or less from aeronautical to nonaeronautical. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:04 Aug 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The rental of the subject property will result in the land at the Marshall Memorial Municipal Airport (MHL) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market rental value for the property. The annual income from rent payments will generate a long-term, revenue-producing stream that will further the Sponsor’s obligation under FAA Grant Assurance number 24, to make the Marshall Memorial Municipal Airport as financially self-sufficient as possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure maps submitted for the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of 14 CFR part 150, effective January 13, 2004. 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 noncompatible 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 SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 168 / Tuesday, August 30, 2016 / Notices 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 Mayland Aviation Administration. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 of part 150 includes: 2014 Base Year NEM Figure (20) and 2019 Future Year NEM Figure (21). 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 2014 Base Year are shown in Table 3–1 and Table 15; and in Chapter 5 of the NEM. Estimates of the future residential population within the 2019 Future Year noise contours are shown in Table 15 and in Chapter 5 of the NEM. Figure 24 displays the location of noise monitoring sites. Flight tracks for the existing and the five-year forecast Noise Exposure Maps are found in Chapter 4 and Appendix F. The type and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime operations) are found in Appendix C. The FAA has determined that these noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on August 17, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:00 Aug 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 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.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Maryland 
Aviation Administration for Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood 
Marshall 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 August 31, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Washington Airports District Office 
(WAS ADO), Marcus Brundage, Environmental Protection Specialist,

Office, 23723 Air Freight Lane, Suite 210, Dulles, VA 20166, Telephone: 
(703) 661-1354.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for the Baltimore/Washington 
International Thurgood Marshall Airport are in compliance with 
applicable requirements of 14 CFR part 150, effective January 13, 2004. 
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 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

[[Page 59715]]

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 Mayland Aviation 
Administration. The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure 
Maps'' (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 of part 150 includes: 2014 
Base Year NEM Figure (20) and 2019 Future Year NEM Figure (21). 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 2014 Base Year are 
shown in Table 3-1 and Table 15; and in Chapter 5 of the NEM. Estimates 
of the future residential population within the 2019 Future Year noise 
contours are shown in Table 15 and in Chapter 5 of the NEM. Figure 24 
displays the location of noise monitoring sites. Flight tracks for the 
existing and the five-year forecast Noise Exposure Maps are found in 
Chapter 4 and Appendix F. The type and frequency of aircraft operations 
(including nighttime operations) are found in Appendix C. The FAA has 
determined that these noise exposure maps and accompanying 
documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This 
determination is effective on August 17, 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.
