Good afternoon stakeholders, In regards to the LAX Noise Policy Review of the FAA Please be advised that: Today, May 1, 2023, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will publish in the Federal Register a Request for Comments (Request for Comments) seeking public input on four key considerations of its Civil Aviation Noise Policy. The FAA is asking the public for input regarding how the FAA analyzes, explains, and presents publicly changes in aircraft noise exposure to affected communities. The posting of the Request for Comments will start a 90-day comment period during which the public can share their input by submitting a written comment to Docket FAA-2023-0855 at www.regulations.gov. The comment window will close on Monday, July 31, 2023. The Request for Comment builds on and responds to public feedback on the FAA’s January 13, 2021 Federal Register Notice. That Notice provided an overview of the FAA’s noise research portfolio and sought input to assist the FAA in assessing how resources should be directed to better understand and manage the factors underlying concerns from aircraft noise exposure. The resounding theme of comments filed in response to that Notice requested that FAA begin the process of updating its noise policies, rather than wait for the outcome of ongoing research efforts. The FAA is committed to providing ample and meaningful public engagement opportunities during the public comment period. There is scheduled a series of four webinars between May 16 - 28 to provide stakeholders an opportunity to engage with the FAA on this topic. They have launched a project website at http://www.faa.gov/noisepolicyreview, which will provide updates, resources, and access to webinar recordings. They will also soon launch a Spanish language website to expand their outreach efforts.
Sincerely, Myrl Schreibman
