Start Preamble

In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), notice is hereby given that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) received a request for a waiver of compliance with certain requirements of its safety standards. The individual petition is described below, including the party seeking relief, the regulatory provisions involved, the nature of the relief being requested, and the petitioner's arguments in favor of relief.

City of Placentia, California

The City of Placentia, California (City) has petitioned for temporary waiver of the deadline of June 24, 2006, provided for in 49 CFR 222.42 for continuation of an intermediate partial quiet zone. The Start Printed Page 32629City states that it is working with the BNSF Railway Company to establish a 24-hour quiet zone, that certain improvements have already been made to the benefit of safety, and that all necessary improvements will be completed by September 22, 2006. The City seeks to retain the current nighttime quiet zone in order to avoid disruption and confusion during the period permanent arrangements are being completed and states that safety will not be compromised.

Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. Each comment shall set forth specifically the basis upon which it is made, and contain a concise statement of the interest of the commenter in the proceeding. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing.

All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the docket number set forth above and must be submitted to the Docket Clerk, DOT Docket Management Facility, Room PL-401 (Plaza Level), 400 7th Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Communications received within 30 days of the date of this notice will be considered by FRA before final action is taken. Comments received after that date will be considered as far as practicable. FRA reserves the right to grant temporary relief to avoid lapse of the existing partial quiet zone while the comment period is open, after consideration of any comments filed prior to the initial date of decision.
