San Jose Airport 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 was reviewed by the San Jose City Council’s Transportation and Environment Committee (T&E) on September 11th and is posted on the T&E Committee's website.
San Jose City Council approved of the formation of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for South Flow Arrivals and invited Santa Clara County cities to participate. Cupertino City Councilmembers participated in the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee to represent the Cupertino community.
