ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted by the Martin County Board of County Commissioners (Airport Sponsor) for Witham Field/ Martin County Airport under the provisions of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act and are in compliance with applicable requirements. DATES: The effective date of the FAA’s determination on the Noise Exposure Maps is December 14, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Green, Federal Aviation Administration, Southern Region/ Orlando Airports District Office, 8427 SouthPark Circle, Orlando, Florida 32819, (407) 487–7296. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted for Witham Field/Martin County Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150, effective December 14, 2021. Under 49 U.S.C. 47503 of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act (‘‘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 14 CFR part 150, promulgated pursuant to the Act, may submit a Noise Compatibility Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the airport operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing non-compatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:39 Dec 16, 2021 Jkt 256001 submitted by the Airport Sponsor. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in 14 CFR 150.7 includes: 2020 Noise Exposure Map (Map 1 of 5); 2025 Noise Exposure Map (Map 2 of 5); AEDT Flight Tracks—All Arrivals (Map 3 of 5); AEDT Flight Tracks—All Departures (Map 4 of 5); AEDT Flight Tracks—All Touch and Go (Map 5 of 5); and the Final Noise Exposure Map Report and its appendices. The Airport Sponsor has certified that the submitted NEMs reasonably represent current year (2021) activity and projected (2026) activity at the airport. The FAA independently reviewed the submitted certification, as well as current forecasts and data for the airport, and concurred that the submitted NEMs reasonably reflect current and projected activity at the airport. The FAA has determined that these Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on December 14, 2021. FAA’s determination on the 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 airport operator’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 exposure 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 14 CFR 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 PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71703 the certification by the airport operator, under 14 CFR 150.21, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Copies of the full Noise Exposure Maps documentation and of the FAA’s evaluation of the maps are available for examination by appointment at the following location: Federal Aviation Administration, Orlando Airports District Office, 8427 SouthPark Circle, 5th Floor, Orlando, Florida 32819. To arrange an appointment to review the Noise Exposure Maps documentation, contact Peter Green, Federal Aviation Administration, Southern Region/Orlando Airports District Office, 8427 SouthPark Circle, Orlando, FL, 32819, (407) 487–7296. Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the heading, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Issued in Orlando Airports District Office, Orlando, FL on December 14, 2021.

Estimated Time per Response: 2 minutes to 2 hours. Expiration Date: This is a new information collection request. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 97 burden hours. Background: In 1998, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the predecessor agency of FMCSA, adopted 49 CFR part 381 as an interim final rule (IFR), establishing procedures for applying for waivers, exemptions, and pilot programs (63 FR 67600, December 8, 1998). Section 4007 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA–21) amended 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e) to provide authority to the Secretary of Transportation to grant waivers and exemptions from motor carrier safety regulations. Section 4007 of TEA–21 requires that the terms and conditions for all waivers and exemptions likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than what would be achieved by complying with the safety regulations. In 2004, FMCSA adopted its IFR as final at 49 CFR part 381, consistent with section 4007 of TEA–21 (69 FR 51589, August 20, 2004). The final rule also established procedures that govern how FMCSA reviews, grants, or denies requests for waivers and applications for exemptions. The final rule included requirements for publishing notice of exemption applications in the Federal Register to afford the public an opportunity for comment. There is no statutory requirement to publish Federal Register notices concerning waiver applications. When the waiver and exemption provisions were first adopted, FHWA stated that it would ‘‘consider the information collection requirements for each waiver, exemption, and pilot program and, if necessary, request approval from the Office of Management and Budget for any special recordkeeping requirements associated with the waiver, exemption, or pilot program.’’ (63 FR 67608). FMCSA included a similar statement when finalizing its IFR in 2004 (69 FR 51597). Recently, FMCSA determined that it now receives a sufficient number of waiver and exemption requests per year to require OMB approval. A 60-day notice for public comment was published on August 16, 2021 (86 FR 45803). The comment period for that notice closed on October 15, 2021. There were no comments submitted to the docket.
