Notice of Availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment for a Proposed Airport Traffic Control Tower and Base Building, University of Illinois Willard Airport, Savoy, IL
Document Number: 2011-11696
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to fund, construct, and operate a new Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and Base Building at the University of Illinois Willard Airport (CMI), Savoy, Illinois. The FAA's preferred alternative is to construct the ATCT at a location on the east central portion of CMI. The purpose and need of the proposed project is to enhance visibility and improve safety of airport movement areas, have the capability to meet existing and future operational and administrative expansion requirements, and improve operational efficiency of the facility because the current ATCT facility is a non-standard design of insufficient height and size. The FAA has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) in conformance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The DEA analyzes the potential environmental impacts that may result from construction and operation of the proposed new ATCT and Base Building at the proposed site, as well as the no action alternative (i.e., not constructing and operating the new ATCT). As part of the proposed project, the DEA also analyzes the potential environmental impacts that may result from replacement and operation of an instrument landing system antenna; and the upgrade and operation of a Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range with Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) facility. The DEA is available for public review during a 30-day public comment period at the following libraries: Champaign Public Library, 200 W Green St., Champaign, IL 61820; Tolono Public Library, 111 E. Main, Tolono, IL 61880.
