Noise Compatibility Committee

Established in 1997, the Noise Compatibility Committee comprises local residents and volunteers who donate their time and expertise to help maintain a high quality of life in Naples.

The nine-member committee meets regularly to review the Airport Noise Abatement Program and make appropriate recommendations to airport staff and the authority. Committee members and airport staff are available to give presentations and answer any aircraft noise-related questions.

The City of Naples Airport Authority is seeking one (1) volunteer to serve on the Noise Compatibility Committee (NCC). Applicants must meet the following criteria to apply to fill the vacant seat in the Airport's Southwest quadrant area:

  1. Be a current resident from the Airport’s Southwest quadrant area (that area extending south and west from the intersection of Airport Pulling Road and Radio Road, and south of Fifth Avenue North, inclusive of Brookside and Royal Harbor).
  2. Be an elector in Collier County, Florida.

The NCC is charged with studying airport noise compatibility methods and recommending to the Authority programs toward resolution of complaints. The NCC meets at least three (3) times a year.  The selected applicant will serve through March 2025, effective upon appointment by the City of Naples Airport Authority Board of Commissioners.

Applications must be received no later than 12:00 Noon on Monday, February 28, 2022.  Public interviews of candidates will be conducted at the Regular Meeting of the City of Naples Airport Authority scheduled for Thursday, March 17, 2022, at 8:30 AM, in Council Chambers at City Hall.
