PUBLIC NOTICE – ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT

PURPOSE OF NOTICE:  To seek public comments and announce a public hearing on the proposed extension of Runway 15 and associated improvements at Richmond Executive – Chesterfield County Airport located within the County of Chesterfield, Virginia.

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD:  February 15, 2015 to March 17, 2015

TYPE OF RESPONSE:  The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is reviewing a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposed runway extension as a component of the airport’s License Modification Application. DEQ is also reviewing a federal consistency certification (FCC) submitted pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act.

NAME OF AGENCY PROPOSING THE PROJECT:  Chesterfield County has submitted a License Modification Application to Virginia Department of Aviation (DOAV).

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  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.

HOW A DECISION IS MADE:  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.

HOW TO COMMENT:  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.  The public may review the project documents at DEQ’s Central Office in Richmond (below) and at the following locations:

  • Richmond Executive – Chesterfield County Airport, Airport Management Offices, 7427 Airfield Drive, Richmond, Virginia 23237
  • Chesterfield Public Library, 9501 Lori Road, Chesterfield, Virginia 23832

  • DEQ Central Office, 629 East Main Street, Room 646, Richmond, VA 23219
  • DEQ Website: www.deq.virginia.gov

A Public Hearing on the project will be hosted by DEQ in conjunction with DOAV for the purposes of compliance with the State licensing requirements (Section 5.1 of the Code of Virginia) and the Coastal Zone Management Act.  Anyone desiring to be heard in support of, or in opposition to, this proposed action may attend and have their comments considered by DEQ and DOAV.

Date: March 3, 2015
Time: Informational Workshop between 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM Public Hearing beginning at 7:00 PM
