The Huntington Beach Air Noise Working Group will present an Air Traffic Noise Community Workshop on Wednesday, June 13, at the Senior Center in the Park from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
The purpose of the workshop is to inform the public of what the Working Group has discovered about the noise increase since its inception in January and what actions have resulted.
The workshop will provide information on the changes causing the increased noise, how those changes came to be, and the political, legislative, and legal actions that are potential paths to addressing the issue. Displays and hands-on activities related to air traffic noise will be available and members of the Working Group will be able to discuss the current status of airplane noise over the City. Following the planned presentation of about 45 minutes, there will be time for audience questions and answers from the subject matter experts in the Working Group.
The Working Group was established to investigate the rise in air traffic noise complaints to the City over the last year and is chaired by Council Members Patrick Brenden and Barbara Delgleize and currently has 12 members.
