The Town-Village Aircraft Safety Noise Abatement Committee will host a meeting Monday 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. in Valley Stream Village Hall, 123 South Central Ave.

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.
