Communities near Kennedy Airport to discuss noise control
The Town-Village Aircraft Safety Noise Abatement Committee will host a meeting Monday night to discuss concerns about low-flying planes and ways to control jet noise in communities near Kennedy Airport.
The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Lawrence Village Hall, on 196 Central Ave. in Lawrence. Representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have been invited to attend.
Members of the 40-year-old coalition have called for equitable distribution of flights onto the airport’s eight runway approaches, a ban on low-flying planes and a reduction of late-night flights as a way to reduce aircraft noise.
Communities participating in the committee include Atlantic Beach, Cedarhurst, East Williston, Floral Park, Garden City, Hewlett Harbor, Inwood, Lawrence, Long Beach, Malverne, New Hyde Park, Stewart Manor, Valley Stream and Woodsburgh.
FAA officials have said runway usage is determined by many factors, including wind direction, weather conditions, construction projects and noise abatement procedures.
