AVAILABILITY OF A FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI) FOR
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, LAWRENCEVILLE, ILLINOIS
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its issuance of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on a Condensed Environmental Assessment (EA) prepared by the Lawrenceville-Vincennes International Airport. That finding addresses the following development actions proposed by the Bi-State Authority:
• Provide a 2.5-acre lease to the Lawrenceville Police Department to operate a practice firing range on the western side of the airfield (in order to comply with the Airport’s FAA Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grant Obligations to create revenue to sustain and improve the Airport and contribute to its capital improvement funds).
FAA's FONSI, issued on December 22, 2020 indicates the proposed airport actions are consistent with existing environmental policies and objectives as set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and will not significantly affect the quality of the environment.
