The fifth change is to the design of a procedure at nearby Henderson Executive Airport (KHND), the GAMES Standard Terminal Arrival Route (STAR). To determine whether the Design Changes require supplementation of the Final EA, the FAA has analyzed the potential environmental effects from the Design Changes, consistent with FAA Order 1050.1F, Paragraph 9–2.c.(1), to determine whether the changes to the Final EA Design would be ‘‘substantial’’ and ‘‘relevant to environmental concerns,’’ i.e., ‘‘paint[s] a dramatically different picture of impacts compared to the description of impacts in the [Final] EA’’ (id., Paragraph 9–3). The FAA’s analysis and determination are documented in a WR/ROD dated December 21, 2020. The WR/ROD analyzes the same environmental impact categories analyzed in the Final EA. As documented in the WR/ROD, the FAA has determined that the Design Changes are not a substantial change in the FAA’s proposed action, as analyzed in the Final EA for the Las Vegas Metroplex Project and approved in the FONSI/ROD, relevant to environmental concerns. The data and analyses contained in the Final EA and FONSI/ ROD are still substantially valid and there are no significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns and bearing on the proposed action or its impacts. Accordingly, the WR/ROD also documents the FAA’s decision not to prepare a supplement to the Final EA. The WR/ROD is publicly available at https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/ community_involvement/las/ and http:// www.metroplexenvironmental.com/las_ metroplex/las_docs.html.
