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 2020.
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT NEWS
Public Information Meetings, to inform the public on the conversion of an EIS to an EA, were held on Monday, October 21, 2019 and Thursday, October 24, 2019. Materials presented at the meetings are available in the Public Outreach page of this website. The agenda for each meeting was identical and an opportunity to submit written comments was provided at each meeting.

The EA will also take into consideration all comments obtained during the public meetings held during the EIS process.
