Let's clean up our skies.

 

WHAT DO we want the faa to do?

  • Suspend the new LAZIR flight route over our communities and reinstate the prior flight path.
  • Include noise and emissions as critical design inputs for arrival and departures routes.
  • Distribute noise equitably over populated areas when it cannot be eliminated.
  • Eliminate or restrict aircraft operations between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM.
  • Adopt more meaningful noise assessment methods on the ground.

What do we want Washington, D.C. to do?

  • Support the legal case filed by the Coalition against the FAA concerning violation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
  • Conduct a technical study on airplane noise like the one being conducted by the City of Palo Alto.  Mayor Bowser has included $300,000 in the budget for such a study.
  • Provide technical support to the DC Representatives to the Community Working Group working with the airport to address aircraft noise over DC.
