Purpose of the meeting
A joint public hearing hosted by the Department of Environmental Quality and the Department of Aviation for the purposes of compliance with the State licensing requirements (Section 5.1 of the Code of Virginia) and the Coastal Zone Management. Act. The Draft EA has been prepared to address the range of potential environmental impacts that could result from the implementation of the proposed extension of Runway 15 with a parallel taxiway and associated improvements. The EA describes potential impacts associated with the development actions of the 2012 Airport Layout Plan, which includes an 800-foot runway extension and associated property interest acquisition, relocation of navigational aids and fueling facilities, and removal of tree obstructions. DEQ’s Office of Environmental Impact Review coordinates the Commonwealth's response to environmental documents for proposed state and federal projects. DEQ distributes the documents to appropriate state agencies, planning districts and localities for their review and comment. Upon consideration of all comments, DEQ prepares a single state response. DOAV must consider the environmental review conducted by DEQ prior to approving the airport’s License Modification Application. DEQ also coordinates the Commonwealth’s review of federal consistency documents to ensure that federal activities that can affect Virginia’s coastal resources and uses are conducted in ways which are consistent with the enforceable policies of Virginia’s Coastal Zone Management Program. DEQ accepts comments from the public by e-mail, fax, or U.S. Mail (see below). All comments must include the name, address, and telephone number of the person commenting and be received by DEQ within the comment period.
