SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In December 2004, the Los Angeles City Council approved the Master Plan for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). From this Master Plan, the City of Los Angeles, through its Airport Department—Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), prepared an Airport Layout Plan (ALP). The ALP depicts the existing and planned future locations of runways, taxiways, aircraft parking aprons, terminal buildings and other associated facilities on the airport. At the time the ALP was prepared, the LAWA's and Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) focus was on airfield safety to reduce runway incursions. A minor component of the Master Plan included aircraft maintenance. The ALP depicts various existing hangar buildings to be demolished and aircraft maintenance to be consolidated into the southwest quadrant of the airport on the east side of a north/south taxiway called “Taxiway AA.”

LAWA proposes to adjust its LAX ALP to depict the proposed West Aircraft Maintenance Area (WAMA) on the west side of Taxiway AA rather than the east side as originally proposed in the 2005 Final EIS. In May 2014, the FAA prepared a Draft Written Reevaluation for a minor adjustment to a project evaluated in its 2005 Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the LAX Master Plan pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969.

FAA made the Draft Written Reevaluation available to the public and governmental agencies for review and comment from April 25 through May 30, 2014. FAA did not receive any comments on the Draft Written Reevaluation.
