Noise Exposure Map Update & Open House

Noise Exposure Map Update Open House

Everyone’s invited to the airport’s public information Open House on June 29 to hear the latest updates about the Part 150 Noise Exposure Maps (NEM). The NEMs are used to generate the noise contour levels and establish best land use practices for all the airport’s runways. The FAA requires airports to update these NEMs every five years to analyze aircraft noise levels at the airport and over the surrounding communities.

The Open House begins at 6 pm and runs until 7:30 pm at Hangar 19, 1604 South Milwaukee Ave in Wheeling (directions below).

Airport staff and consultants from Mead & Hunt, the company updating the NEMs, will be on hand to answer your questions about aircraft noise and how the new NEMs might benefit the community. If you’re  unable to attend but have a question or comment you’d like included for the record, please e-mail them prior to the meeting to Jen Wolchansky at jennifer.wolchansky@meadhunt.com.

 

Directions: Hangar 19 is accessible from Milwaukee Ave on Tower Road. Additional related questions may be sent to the Airport Communications Office at rmark@chiexec.com
