Not Over My Back Yard

Record #:
As development has increased in the Triangle area, so too has the noise from airplanes at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). In 1989, a local citizen’s pressured the Airport Authority to adopt a Noise Abatement Policy, and the Noise Abatement Committee was formed to make recommendations on noise policy. While RDU’s noise regulations are stricter than the federal guidelines, they are vulnerable to abuse. Options which the committee may recommend to help solve the problem are detailed along with the effect noise has on residents’ lives.
