The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority is proposing to construct a 14-gate replacement passenger terminal for the Bob Hope “Hollywood Burbank” Airport.

On May 21, 2021, the FAA released a Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) and Record of Decision for the 14-gate terminal. However, the City of Los Angeles brought suit, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ordered the FAA to re-evaluate certain aspects of the document (mainly construction noise). For more information on the background click here.

As a result, the FAA released a Draft Written Re-evaluation for public review and comment. Please visit the Documents, Resources and Reports page, or click here to access the document.

The FAA responded to all comments received on the Draft Written Re-evaluation. The FAA released a Final Written Re-evaluation and Record of Decision, which can be accessed on the Documents, Resources, and Reports page, or click here to access the document.

The FAA has become aware that comments we received during the scoping process for the proposed Bob Hope “Hollywood Burbank” Airport Terminal Replacement Project were inadvertently left out of the scoping report for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, which the FAA released last week. The FAA has reviewed the comments and determined that the majority were similar or identical to other comments that we received from others during the scoping process and are documented in Appendix B – Scoping Report. To view these comments and responses, click here. The FAA will address all substantive comments in the Final EIS.
