Concerns regarding noise pollution caused by the increase in air traffic coming from New York City’s airports is prompting action by local and state officials.

A recent directive by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to have the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey conduct an airport noise and land compatibility study for LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports and to establish a community roundtable for airport noise with the Federal Aviation Administration and other stakeholders  was the subject of a recent meeting in Great Neck.   

Held at the office of Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel Dec. 13, local leaders met to discuss steps needed to ensuring proper representation on the roundtables of the governor's Part 150 study.

With Schimel was Assemblywoman Michelle Titus, Assemblyman Edward Ra, Len Schaier, president of quietskies.net and representatives from the offices of Assemblyman Charles Lavine and Rep. Steve Israel. 

The focus of the meeting was to discuss a plan to insure that the noise study is comprehensive and completed in a timely fashion, according to Schimel.

“These directives are essential in addressing the growing problem of aircraft noise in all of our districts," said Schimel.

Schimel said the increase in air traffic is impacting her constituents so she looks forward to working with the governor on the study and seeing getting the community roundtable off the ground, according to Schimel.
