TWO ACTION NOTICES
ACTION NOTICE (1)
AIRPORT NOISE – BURBANK
Comment needed by August 23rd
The FAA has increased the number of flight paths over Studio City, Sherman Oaks and Encino that are lower, louder and directly over residents’ houses.
Comments need to be sent on the FAA link. Request that they correct the area map included with the Procedure documents and then restart the clock on the comment period.
Go To FAA link:
traffic/flight_info/aeronav/ procedures/application/?event= procedure.results&tab= coordination&nasrId=BUR# searchResultsTop
In the middle of the FAA page under the dark blue titles at the far right there is a small box (Email FAA) for each of the procedures. Send comments to both of the “procedures” listed.
Enter your name and other requested contact information.
Under type of concern: Check DP (departures)
Please put the date in the comment box. We have learned that there is an attempt to back date these procedures.
Request that they correct the area map included with the Procedure documents and then restart the clock on the comment period.
Object to waypoints in the residential area
Object to these procedures being implemented without an Environmental Impact Report being completed
ISSUE: The FAA has just added two new departure procedures that are set to take effect on November 8, 2018. These procedures include the establishment of two new waypoints (like beacons for airplanes) in Studio City and Sherman Oaks! One will be at Colfax and Ventura (near Carpenter School) and the other will be at Hollyline, south of Valley Vista (near The Buckley School). There has been no public announcement or outreach. This will serve to legitimize and make permanent the path over our heads and perhaps make it worse with even lower altitudes! It is highly unusual to have waypoints in residential neighborhoods. We suggest they move to the freeway along the natural “noise corridor.”
ACTION NOTICE (2)
FINAL STUDY PRESENTATION MEETING
In May, Burbank Airport had a meeting where aviation experts, Landrum and Brown, presented a Preliminary Study stating that, in fact, the path shifted south above our heads. The airport was to schedule another meeting for the Final Study Presentation. This second meeting has been scheduled for AUGUST 30, 2018, the Thursday BEFORE LABOR DAY! This is a time when many people are out of town including those who have been actively trying to stop this.
