FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Camille Garibaldi, Federal Aviation Administration, San Francisco Airports District Office, 1000 Marina Boulevard, Suite 220, Brisbane, CA 94005–1835; email Camille.Garibaldi@faa.gov; or Telephone: 650–827–7613 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the noise exposure maps submitted for Fresno Yosemite International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Title14, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150 (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Part 150’’), effective February 16, 2018. Under 49 United States Code (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 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 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 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 City of Fresno. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Figure 14 Existing Condition (2017) Noise Exposure Map, and Figure 15 Forecast Conditions (2022) Noise Exposure Map. The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and forecast information including the depiction of the airport and its boundary; the runway configurations, land uses such as residential, commercial, industrial, and open space/recreational land use; locations of noise sensitive public buildings (such as schools, hospitals, E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 8566 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 39 / Tuesday, February 27, 2018 / Notices and historic properties on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places); and the Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) 65, 70, and 75 decibel airport noise contours resulting from existing and forecast airport operations. The frequency of airport operations is described in Section 4.2 of the Noise Exposure Map Update report. Flight tracks associated with Fresno Yosemite International Airport are depicted in Figures 9 through 12. The Fresno Yosemite International Airport noise monitoring system is described in both Section 5.3 and Appendix O, with noise monitoring locations shown on Figure O–1 of the report. Estimates of the number of people residing within the CNEL contours is located in Section 5.2.2 of the Noise Exposure Map Update report. The FAA has determined that these noise exposure maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on February 16, 2018. 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 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:49 Feb 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 150.21 of Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished.

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release airport property for nonaeronautical purposes at the Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE) under the provisions of Section 47125(a) of Title 49 U.S.C. On November 6, 2017, the FAA determined that the request to release airport property for nonaeronautical purposes at the Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE), Pennsylvania, submitted by the City of Philadelphia, Department of Aviation, met the procedural requirements. Final release of the property is subject to FAA’s NEPA determination made on August 11, 2017. The following is a brief overview of the request: The City requests the release of a portion of airport property totaling 8.36 acres, which is no longer needed for aeronautical purposes. The 8.36 acres were part of 54.432 acres known as Tract 4. This property is located off Academy Road in the City of Philadelphia, Philadelphia County and was originally purchased with federal funds under the Federal Aid for Airports Program (FAAP) Grant 9–36– 040–5901. The 8.36 acres requested for non-aeronautical use are to be sold to UL Grant Avenue, LLC, to be used for retail development and a maintenance building for the adjacent Union League Golf Club. The property is located in the southeast portion of existing airport property and is currently vacant. As shown on PNE’s approved Airport Layout Plan, the property does not serve a current aeronautical purpose and is not needed for current or future airport development. The proceeds from the Fair Market Value (FMV) sale of the 8.36 acres of property will be added to the airport’s operating revenue or will be used for eligible airport development purposes, as outlined in FAA Order 5190.6B, Airport Compliance Manual. Any person may inspect the request by appointment at the FAA office address listed above. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed release. All comments will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Issued in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, on February 21, 2018. Lori K.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the noise exposure maps submitted for Fresno Yosemite 
International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of 
Title14, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150 (hereinafter 
referred to as ``Part 150''), effective February 16, 2018. Under 49 
United States Code (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, 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 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 City of Fresno. The 
documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure Maps'' as defined 
in section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Figure 14 Existing Condition 
(2017) Noise Exposure Map, and Figure 15 Forecast Conditions (2022) 
Noise Exposure Map. The Noise Exposure Maps contain current and

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 applicant's data, information or
