Environmental Assessment for Land Aquisition
Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact / Record of Decision
Improvements to Nampa Municipal Airport (MAN) Nampa, Idaho
Interested parties are hereby notified that Nampa, Idaho, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) and the FAA has prepared a Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for improvements at the Nampa Municipal Airport (Airport Location ID MAN). The airport is located within the City of Nampa in Canyon County, Idaho, and is owned and operated by the City of Nampa (Airport Sponsor).
The City of Nampa’s purpose for pursuing improvements at the Nampa Municipal Airport is to mitigate incompatible land uses within the Runway 11 RPZ, thereby improving the Airport’s safety in accordance with planning guidelines established by FAA. To accomplish this, the City has proposed to acquire a parcel of 6.717 acres of private land adjacent to the existing Runway 11 of the Nampa Municipal Airport from a single private landowner. Existing structures on the property would be removed to eliminate incompatible land uses within the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ) of Runway 11 and structures outside the RPZ may be proposed for removal. Prior to any structures on the property being removed, their historic integrity and overall condition will be evaluated and coordinated with the Idaho State Preservation Office as appropriate. These action are collectively referred to as the Proposed Action.
The EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and the Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) guidelines. The purpose of the EA is to assess the effects on the human and natural environment associated with the Proposed Action. The EA evaluated two alternatives—the No Action Alternative and the Proposed Action.
The FONSI/ROD is the FAA’s finding that the Proposed Action will not have a significant effect on the human and natural environment associated with the proposed improvements.
Hard copies of the FONSI/ROD and Final EA are available for public review at the following locations during regular business hours:
