42 communities and 19 school districts dedicated to reducing aircraft noise in the communities around O’Hare International Airport since 1996.


The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission sent the Federal Aviation Administration its comments on August 25, 2015 regarding the FAA’s O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Re-evaluation.

“While maintaining a neutral position regarding O’Hare’s modernization efforts, ONCC steadfastly remains engaged in the process of defining, addressing and seeking solutions for noise issues during the modernization timeframe,” wrote ONCC Chair and Mount Prospect Mayor Arlene A. Juracek.

“While we understand that the interim contour is not the basis for sound insulation, it is an important “as-is” baseline from which we can assess options for additional aircraft noise relief for those who live within this temporary condition and will continue to do so for the next five years,” she continued. “We believe the FAA’s Re-Evaluation to be a fair and thorough assessment of the interim conditions between 2015 and 2020.”
