SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given its overall approval to the Burlington International Airport noise compatibility program, effective August 27, 2020. Under Section 104 (a) of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter the Act), an airport operator who has previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties including local communities, government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel. Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance with 14 CFR part 150 is a local program, not a federal program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended for action. The FAA’s approval or disapproval of the Part 150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in Part 150 and the Act, and is limited to the following determinations: DATES: E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 191 / Thursday, October 1, 2020 / Notices (a) The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150; (b) Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; (c) Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the federal government; and (d) Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator as prescribed by law. Specific limitations with respect to FAA’s approval of an airport noise compatibility program are delineated in Part 150, Section 150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself constitute a FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA under the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982. Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Regional Office in Burlington, Massachusetts. The Burlington International Airport study contains a proposed noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from the date of study completion to beyond the year 2011. The Burlington International Airport, South Burlington, Vermont requested that the FAA evaluate and approve this material as a noise compatibility program as described in Section 104 (b) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given 
its overall approval to the Burlington International Airport noise 
compatibility program, effective August 27, 2020.
    Under Section 104 (a) of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement 
Act of 1979 (hereinafter the Act), an airport operator who has 
previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise 
compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed 
by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible 
land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within 
the area covered by the noise exposure maps.
    The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with 
interested and affected parties including local communities, government 
agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel.
    Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance 
with 14 CFR part 150 is a local program, not a federal program. The FAA 
does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport proprietor 
with respect to which measures should be recommended for action. The 
FAA's approval or disapproval of the Part 150 program recommendations 
is measured according to the standards expressed in Part 150 and the 
Act, and is limited to the following determinations:

[[Page 62009]]

    (a) The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance 
with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150;
    (b) Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the 
goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport 
and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses;
    (c) Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate 
or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of 
aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or 
intrude into areas preempted by the federal government; and
    (d) Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can 
be implemented within the period covered by the program without 
derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management 
of the navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely 
affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator as 
prescribed by law.
    Specific limitations with respect to FAA's approval of an airport 
noise compatibility program are delineated in Part 150, Section 150.5. 
Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land 
uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself 
constitute a FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or 
approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be 
required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an 
environmental assessment of the proposed action.
    Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially 
assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that 
all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid 
funding from the FAA under the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 
1982. Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must 
be submitted to the FAA Regional Office in Burlington, Massachusetts.
    The Burlington International Airport study contains a proposed 
noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for 
implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from 
the date of study completion to beyond the year 2011. The Burlington 
International Airport, South Burlington, Vermont requested that the FAA 
evaluate and approve this material as a noise compatibility program as 
described in Section 104 (b) of the Act. The FAA began its review of 
the program on April 15, 2020, and was required by a provision of the 
Act to approve or disapprove the program within 180 days (other than 
the use of new flight procedures for noise control). Failure to approve 
or disapprove such a program within the 180-day period shall be deemed 
to be an approval of such a program.
    The submitted program contained 9 noise mitigation measures, 
including 2 to be removed. The FAA completed its review and determined 
that the procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and Part 
150 have been satisfied. The Airports Division Manager therefore 
approved the program effective August 27, 2020.
    All 7 recommended measures were approved, and 2 recommended for 
removal were approved for removal. The new program will de-emphasize 
land acquisition in lieu of sound insulation, as the primary noise 
mitigation measure.
    FAA's determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of 
Approval endorsed by the Airports Division Director on August 27, 2020.

documents comprising the submittal, are available for review at the FAA 
office listed above and at the administrative offices of Burlington 
International Airport, South Burlington, Vermont.
