Proposed Midfield Hangar Development


Final Environmental Assessment and

Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) Now Available 

 

Johnston County proposes to develop approximately 34 box (rectangular) and T-hangars at Johnston Regional Airport (JNX) in Smithfield and to lease them to house privately-owned corporate and general aircraft. Johnston County and the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Division of Aviation (DOA) prepared and made a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) available for public and regulatory agency review during the Summer of 2020. After reviewing comments provided on the Draft EA, Johnston County and the DOA prepared a Final EA in which comments on the substance of the Draft EA are addressed. The Final EA discusses the purpose and need for the project, considers other alternatives for providing hangars at JNX, and discloses the environmental impacts of the proposal. Based on the analysis in the Final EA and comments provided, the DOA has made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) from the proposed project.
