Citizens’ Noise Advisory Committee meets July 12

The Portland International Airport Citizen Noise Advisory Committee (CNAC) will meet at the Port of Portland headquarters in the Anchor Room (first floor), from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 12. CNAC meetings are open to the public and include time for public comment. Interested residents are encouraged to attend. For more information or directions to the meeting, contact the port noise management hotline at 503-460-4100 or 800-938-6647.

The agenda includes a discussion of possible opportunities to add value to the airport’s noise management program. Port staff will also update the committee on the Fly Quiet program and the Homeowner Sound Insulation Guidebook.

The CNAC is the port’s official forum for working with the community on issues related to aircraft noise. Committee representatives are from northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. Eleven members are appointed by various city and county jurisdictions, and four representatives are appointed by the Port in an effort to maintain geographic diversity on the committee. Technical assistance is provided by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Oregon Air National Guard.
