                Noise Exposure Map Notice; Naples Municipal Airport, Naples,
                Florida
                AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.
                ACTION: Notice.
                -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its
                determination that the Noise Exposure Maps submitted by the Naples
                Airport Authority for the Naples Municipal 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 9, 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 the Naples Municipal Airport
                are in compliance with applicable requirements of Title 14 Code of
                Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150, effective December 9, 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 non-compatible 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 non-
                compatible uses.
                 The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and
                accompanying documentation submitted by the Naples Airport Authority.
                The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure Maps'' as
                defined in 14 CFR 150.7 includes: 2021 Existing Conditions Noise
                Exposure Map (Map 1 of 5); 2026 Future Conditions Noise Exposure Map
                (Map 2 of 5); Modeled Fixed Wing Flight Tracks, Runway 5-23 (Map 3 of
                5); Modeled Fixed Wing Flight Tracks, Runway 14-32 (Map 4 of 5);
                Modeled Helicopter Flight Tracks, All Runways (Map 5 of 5); and the
                Final Noise Exposure Map Report and its appendices. The FAA has
                determined that these Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying
                documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This
                determination is effective on December 9, 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 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
