Piedmont Triad – As part of the on-going Part 150 Update Study, the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority (PTAA) has completed the Draft Noise Exposure Map (NEM) Update and proposed amendments to the Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) pursuant to the requirements of 14 CFR Part 150 for Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTI). PTAA is making the Draft Part 150 Update document available for public review and comment and is holding a virtual public workshop and hearing to review the results of the study and provide an opportunity to ask questions and provide comment.

The Draft NEMs show the airport layout, noise contours, and surrounding land uses for existing and five-year forecast (2025) conditions at PTI. There are no non-compatible land uses within the 2020 or 2025 NEM contours. The Part 150 Update also reviewed the PTAA-recommended and FAA-approved NCP measures from 2007, intended to mitigate aircraft noise and reduce non-compatible land uses, and recommended several amendments to these existing measures.

The Draft Part 150 Update document is available online at: ptipart150update.com/documents. There is also a hard copy available for review in the PTAA offices during normal business hours. Public comments should be submitted on or before December 17, 2020 to part150@gsoair.org or mailed to the Authority at 1000A Ted Johnson Parkway, Greensboro, NC 27409. All comments will be included in the Final Part 150 Update documents which PTAA will submit to the Federal Aviation Administration for acceptance.

PTAA will hold a virtual public workshop for the Draft Part 150 Update and public hearing on the proposed NCP amendments on Tuesday December 8, 2020. The virtual public workshop will be held from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and the hearing will be conducted from 7:30pm to 8:30pm online via Zoom.

The public workshop will begin with a 30-minute presentation followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions to the Study Team. During the public hearing, the public will have an opportunity to provide oral comments for the record on the recommended NCP amendments.

Those interested in attending the virtual public workshop or hearing can register by emailing part150@gsoair.org or calling Suzanne Akkoush at 336.665.5664.

PTAA encourages all interested parties to monitor the project website for the latest study information and announcements at ptipart150update.com.
