Synopsis As Introduced
Commends the generation of new CNEL data as a way for the communities around O'Hare International Airport to better understand the impact of airport noise on their communities and quality of life. Commends the City of Chicago for supporting P.A. 99-202 and calls upon it to continue to take steps to implement the law and generate the data mandated by this Public Act. Calls upon the Federal Aviation Administration to assist the City of Chicago in the implementation of P.A. 99-202, including the siting, re-siting, and re-equipping of noise monitoring stations, and the generation and publication of data generated by these stations in conformity with CNEL professional standards. Re-affirms the noise contour maps that cover areas surrounding O'Hare Airport, and describes that the impacts of noise upon these communities, should be based upon the best and newest possible data and technology. Calls upon the FAA to use new CNEL data to revisit the existing noise contour maps that cover areas surrounding O'Hare Airport, and to promptly redraw these maps as new airport noise data is submitted.
