Federal Aviation Administration

Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement

AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice to Rescind a Notice of Intent to Prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement.


SUMMARY: A Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact 
Statement was published in the Federal Register Vol. 78, No. 248, 
Thursday, December 26, 2013, to advise the public that the FAA would 
prepare an EIS analyzing the potential environmental impacts of the 
proposed Shiloh Launch Complex. Space Florida had indicated an intent 
to submit an application to the FAA to request approval to operate a 
commercial space launch site, called the ``Shiloh Launch Complex'' in 
Brevard and Volusia Counties, Florida, triggering the requirement to 
comply with the National Environmental Policy Act. The FAA is issuing 
this notice to advise the public that Space Florida is conducting 
further analysis of the proposed site and the FAA will no longer 
prepare an EIS for this proposed project, at this time. If Space 
Florida decides to reinitiate the project, the FAA will release a new 
Notice of Intent for this project.

Protection Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 
Independence Avenue SW, Suite 325, Washington, DC 20591; email

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA in conjunction with the cooperating 
agencies, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Park 
Service will no longer be preparing an EIS for the issuance of a launch 
site operator license to Space Florida for the operation of the Shiloh 
Launch Site at this time.

    Issued in Washington, DC.
