SAN Continues Noise Study with Public Input

Friday, December 6, 2019

In an ongoing effort to identify current and future noise impacts in neighborhoods near San Diego International Airport, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority is seeking FAA review of maps that illustrate noise exposure levels, known as “noise contours.”

This effort is part of the Airport Authority’s Part 150 Noise Study.

As part of the study, the Airport Authority has enlisted the help of a citizens’ advisory committee made up of residents living in key communities such as La Jolla, Ocean Beach, Point Loma and La Mesa. Together, the group is working to identify ways to either mitigate the aircraft noise already occurring or abate the aircraft noise at the source.

The Airport Authority hosted a public workshop Nov. 21, attended by about 30 members of the public. Participants were given the opportunity to learn various aspects of the Part 150 study, through technical members of the study team, allowing them to ask individual questions and engage in a collaborative dialogue.
