The next O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) meeting will be held on August 17, 2022, @ 9 a.m. in person at Cafe la Cave, 2777 S. Mannheim Rd, Des Plaines, IL.

On Friday, July 15, the ONCC submitted a request to the FAA to extend the Public Comment Deadline for the TAP EA. View Here.

Today, we received the following response:

Thank you for your request to extend the public comment period on the Draft Chicago O’Hare International Airport Terminal Area Plan and Air Traffic Procedures Environmental Assessment and General Conformity Determination. The FAA declines to extend the comment period for the following reasons:

  • A number of communities have already submitted comments
  • The Draft document was out for public review for 41 days before the ONCC briefing
  • Two public meetings were held on the Draft document before the ONCC was briefed
  • ONCC provided substantive comments on July 15, 2022

Thank you for participating in the public comment period process. The FAA will review your comments and provide a response in the Final Chicago O’Hare International Airport Terminal Area Plan and Air Traffic Procedures Environmental Assessment and General Conformity Determination to be released later this year.
