Closing Bell: Meeting on LaGuardia Airport Noise This Wednesday


    This Wednesday, November 6th Assemblywoman Margaret Markey is holding a public meeting with officials from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the Port Authority of NY and NJ to address noise and environmental concerns at LaGuardia Airport. According to the press release, the Federal Aviation Administration will discuss a new program that’s applying satellite-based technology to streamline aircraft landing procedures at LaGuardia. Port Authority officials will discuss their new Airport Noise and Operations Management System, which will permit the PA to use monitoring equipment to track noise and identify aircrafts that exceed the authorized noise level. The eventual goal is that the public can obtain all current airplane flight data and file a complaint that will identify the specific flight and airline. The meeting begins at 7pm at Maspeth Town Hall, 53-37 72nd Street, in Maspeth.
