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 the FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of 14 CFR 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 Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ (NEM) as defined in Section 150.7 includes a 2019 Base Year NEM, Figure 5–1, and a 2024 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, 2019 Base Year NEM and 2024 Future Year NEM are identified as Figures 5–9 and 5–10 and are both located in an attachment to 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 E:\FR\FM\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 27184 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 11, 2019 / Notices 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 2019 Base Year and 2024 Future Year are shown in Table 5–4 of Chapter 5 of the NEM Report. Estimates of the residential population within the 2019 Base Year and 2024 Future Year noise contours are also shown in Table 5–1 of Chapter 5 of the NEM Report.

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 September 13, 2018 and closed on October 15, 2018. Public workshops for the Draft NEMs were held on September 25 and September 26, 2018. 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 H 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 January 15, 2019. 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 14 CFR 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 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, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished.

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 the FAA to be in 
compliance with the requirements of 14 CFR 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 includes a 2019 Base Year NEM, 
Figure 5-1, and a 2024 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, 2019 Base Year NEM and 2024 Future Year NEM are 
identified as Figures 5-9 and 5-10 and are both located in an 
attachment to 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

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 
2019 Base Year and 2024 Future Year are shown in Table 5-4 of Chapter 5 
of the NEM Report. Estimates of the residential population within the 
2019 Base Year and 2024 Future Year noise contours are also shown in 
Table 5-1 of Chapter 5 of the NEM Report. Figure 2-4 in Chapter 2 
displays the location of noise monitoring sites. Flight tracks are 
found in Figures 4-7 and 4-8 of Chapter 4 and detailed in Appedix D. 
The type and frequency of aircraft operations (including nighttime) are 
found in Appendix D.2, Tables 5, 6, 7 and 8.
    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 
September 13, 2018 and closed on October 15, 2018. Public workshops for 
the Draft NEMs were held on September 25 and September 26, 2018. 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 H 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 January 15, 2019.
    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 14 CFR 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
