Sec. 150.5 - Limitations of this part.
(a) Pursuant to the ASNA Act (49 U.S.C.
2101 et seq.), this part provides for airport noise compatibility
planning and land use programs necessary to the purposes of those
provisions. No submittal of a map, or approval or disapproval, in whole or
part, of any map or program submitted under this part is a determination
concerning the acceptability or unacceptability of that land use under
Federal, State, or local law.
(b) Approval of a noise compatibility
program under this part is neither 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
(c) Approval of a noise compatibility
program under this part does not by itself constitute an 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,
pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et
seq.) and applicable regulations, directives, and guidelines.
(d) Acceptance of a noise exposure map
does not constitute an FAA determination that any specific parcel of land
lies within a particular noise contour. Responsibility for interpretation
of the effects of noise contours upon subjacent land uses, including the
relationship between noise contours and specific properties, rests with
the sponsor or with other state or local government.
