ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT NEWS
The City of Charlotte has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Proposed Capacity Enhancement Projects at CLT which was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in February 2022. The FAA Memphis Airports District Office issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Record of Decision (ROD). The Final EA and the FONSI/ROD are available here.
Paper copies of the Final EA and FONSI/ROD are available for public review at CLT Center, 5601 Wilkinson Boulevard, Charlotte, NC 28208. To make an appointment to review the documents, please contact Amber Leathers, Planning Director, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, (704) 560 1820.
This site replaces the former www.CLTEIS.com website for the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which was cancelled on February 27, 2019. The City of Charlotte (Airport Sponsor) will now complete the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) evaluation as an Environmental Assessment (EA).
The Airport Sponsor will prepare the EA in accordance with NEPA, all applicable federal regulations, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidance. The EA will assess the potential impacts of the proposal to construct:
- Fourth Parallel Runway 1-19 (including End-Around Taxiways)
- Terminal and Ramp Expansion
To ensure the Airport continues to meet current and future demand, the Airport Sponsor plans to implement the above improvements at CLT, proposed for construction by 2028, as recommended in its Master Plan Update and documented on the CLT Airport Layout Plan (ALP).
Similar to the EIS, the EA will evaluate the potential direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts that may result from the Proposed Action. The Sponsor expects to complete the EA in early 2022.
