The FAA has completed and is making publicly available its Record of Decision for the proposed replacement airport at St. George, Utah. The FAA has published a Notice of Availability of the FEIS in the Federal Register on May 12, 2006. The FAA prepared the FEIS pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. The FEIS assesses the potential impact of the proposed replacement airport, as well as the “No Action Alternative” of not constructing a new airport. The FAA accepted comments on the FEIS and prepared responses to the comments, both of which are included in an appendix to the ROD.

The FAA selected the proposed replacement airport as the preferred alternative in meeting the purpose and need for improvements for St. George. The proposed replacement airport alternative includes the following federal actions: Construction and operation of a new 9,300-foot runway (01/19), and all support facilities (i.e., taxiways and associated lighting; a passenger terminal, apron, and associated parking; an aircraft rescue and fire-fighting (ARFF) facility; facilities for a fixed-base operator, general and corporate aviation, and air cargo; fuel farm facilities; airport maintenance facilities; and airport access to the Southern Corridor Highway). Also included in the Start Printed Page 50498installation of navigational aids, airspace use, and approach and departure procedures.
