The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA), formed through a Joint Powers Agreement between Blaine County and the City of Hailey, operates and manages the Friedman Memorial Airport. The Airport is a commercial service airport serving several airlines and general aviation traffic. The FMAA proposed 1) purchase of approximately 386 acres of property south of the Airport and 2) development of 10.4 acres of the acquired property into general aviation hangars, aircraft parking apron, and associated vehicle parking and roadways adjacent to existing Airport facilities. The FMAA sought federal funding to assist with the property acquisition and aviation development.
The Final Environmental Assessment (EA) identifies the potential environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action, as well as how any identified impacts could be avoided, minimized, or mitigated. The EA has been prepared pursuant to FAA requirements for compliance (FAA Order 1051.f) with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
