Communities Act to Reduce the Impact of Jet Aircraft Noise 710348
This paper describes what communities have done and can do to reduce the impact of aircraft noise. Specifically, the historical action of Hempstead, New York, the Ten Point Program of Inglewood, California, and the International Airport development at Kansas City, Missouri, are outlined in some detail.
Also, the paper presents an integrated plan for achieving a reasonable noise environment in the future. The plan is based on establishment of nationwide goals, on improved communication and decision making between communities and airports, and on a new concept of economic incentives which makes noise pollution a cost factor in industry decision making.
