Environmental Planning

Airport projects of almost any size require some type of environmental processing, permitting or assessment.  That said, environmental concerns incorporated into the planning of projects early on will ensure that the project is not only easily approved but also accepted and embraced by the surrounding community.

While it is every airport’s charge to maintain or improve the existing environmental conditions, that charge can be quite challenging when faced with changes in airport activity or a new vision for your operations.  Newhouse & Associates can help you navigate these challenges while ensuring that all environmental concerns are addressed.

Some of the things we can handle for you are:

  • NEPA/Permitting
  • Environmental Impact Statements (EIS)
  • Environmental Assessments (EA)
  • Finding Of No Significant Impact (FONSI)
  • Categorical Exclusions
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Aircraft Noise Assessments
  • Airport Noise Compatibility Planning (FAR Part 150)
  • Land Use Compatibility Planning
  • Noise Exposure Map Preparation and Update
  • Noise Office Support

Seemingly impossible projects due to environmental concerns can often be addressed with the right creativity, planning and outreach to your community.  Give us the opportunity to put on our thinking caps to address your impossible project, send us an email and start the conversation. (Just click the little envelope below.)
