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.

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 authorities with which consultation is required under Section 47503 of the Act.

Noise Exposure Map Notice for John F. Kennedy International 
Airport, New York City, New York

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Port 
Authority of New York and New Jersey for John F. Kennedy International 
Airport under the provisions of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement 
Act and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable requirements.

DATES: The effective date of the FAA's determination on the noise 
exposure maps is May 19, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eastern Region Airports Division (AEA-
600), Andrew Brooks, Environmental Program Manager, Federal Aviation 
Administration, AEA-600, 1 Aviation Plaza, Jamaica, New York 11434, 
Telephone: (718) 553-3330.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for John F. Kennedy 
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 Port Authority of New York 
and New Jersey. The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure 
Maps'' (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 of Part 150 includes a 2016 
Base Year NEM, Figure 5-1, and a 2021 Future Year NEM, Figure 5-2, 
located in Chapter 5 of the NEM Report. Details of the NEM contours are 
provided by Runway end in Figures 5-3 through 5-6 of Chapter 5. The 
figures contained within Chapter 5 are scaled to fit within the report 
context; however, the official, to scale, 2016 Base Year NEM and 2021 
Future Year NEM are both located in Appendix M of the official NEM 
Report submittal. The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and forecast 
information including the depiction of the airport and its boundaries, 
the runway configurations, land uses such as single and two-family 
residential; multi-family residential; mixed residential and 
commercial; commercial and office; industrial and manufacturing; 
transportation, parking and utilities; public facilities and 
institutions; unclassified; open space, cemetaries, and outdoor 
recreation; vacant land; places of worship; schools; historic 
structures; hospitals; and day care/assisted living facilities 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 
2016 Base Year and 2021 Future Year are shown in Table 5-1 and Table 5-
4 in Chapter 5 of the NEM Report respectively. Estimates of the 
residential population within the 2016 Base Year and 2021 Future Year 
noise contours are also shown in Table 5-1 and Table 5-4 in Chapter 5 
of the NEM Report respectively. Figure 4-12, in Chapter 4, displays the 
location of noise monitoring sites. Flight tracks are found in Figures 
4-2 through 4-5 of Chapter 4 and detailed in Appedices E and M. The 
type and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime 
operations) are found in Chapter 4, Tables 4-1 and 4-2.
    As discussed in Chapter 6 of the NEM Report, the Port Authority of 
New York and New Jersey provided the general public the opportunity to 
review and comment on the NEMs. This public comment period opened on 
October 26, 2016 and closed on November 28, 2016. Public workshops for 
the Draft NEMs were held on November 2 and November 3, 2016. All 
comments received during the public comment

period and throughout the development of the NEMs, as well as responses 
to these comments, are contained in Appendix L of the NEM Report.
    The FAA has determined that these noise exposure maps and 
accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable 
requirements. This determination is effective on May 19, 2017.
    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 authorities 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.

FAA's evaluation of the maps are available for examination at the
