Aircraft Noise Update

Post Date:08/31/2017
Dear Valued Resident: 
The City continues to monitor the aircraft noise issue, seeking a solution for our residents. While the City does not have direct authority over air space, please be assured that we are working with regional agencies and federal representatives to mitigate the effect on our residents. Here is a an update on relevant meetings and actions on this matter:
San Jose Airport Proposed Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for South Flow Arrivals

At its February 27, 2017 meeting, the San Jose Airport Commission recommended the formation of a roundtable committee to discuss the concerns of residents from surrounding communities with the noise impacts of “south flow procedure” used at the Airport. In response to the Commission’s recommendation, Airport staff proposed the formation of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for South Flow Arrivals for San Jose City Council review. The staff report on the formation of the Committee is currently scheduled to be reviewed by the San Jose City Council’s Transportation and Environment Committee (T&E) on September 11. The staff report will be posted by  3:00pm on September 1st on the Committee's website.  The T&E meeting will take place in the Committee meeting rooms Wing of San Jose City Hall. The meeting will begin at 2:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend, you can see the meeting live (under “Currently in Session”) or at a later time convenient for you (under “Recently Archived Meetings”) by going to the following site:

If the T&E Committee approves staff’s proposal to form an ad hoc advisory committee, the staff report and the T&E Committee’s action on the staff report will be reviewed by San Jose's full City Council at its October 3rd meeting at 1:30pm.
