Naples Airport Authority Releases Draft Noise Study
The Naples Airport Authority (NAA) has released its draft Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) Update as it prepares to complete the ongoing Part 150 Noise Study. The NCP Update includes proposed measures for addressing aircraft noise and noncompatible land uses, based on public feedback throughout the Part 150 Noise Study process. The draft is available for review on the NCP Study website at www.flynaples.com/noisestudy.
“We encourage the public to review the draft NCP Update and provide their comments,” said NAA Executive Director, Chris Rozansky. “This is an important step as we near the end of the process and prepare to submit our proposed measures for FAA review.”
The NAA invites the public to speak with staff about the Part 150 study and the Draft NCP Update at a public hearing and series of open houses on Thursday, March 9, 2023. The open houses will be held at Moorings Presbyterian Church from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. with a public hearing starting at 6:30 P.M.
The Open Houses will include display boards providing a brief overview of the 14 CFR Part 150 process and a summary of the noise, land use, and program management measures recommended in the Draft NCP Update. Staff will be available to answer questions.
The Public Hearing will begin at 6:30 P.M and will provide participants with the opportunity to provide a verbal comment on the Draft NCP Update. All comments received during the Public Hearing will become part of the formal project record.
