North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board announced that the Town’s Aircraft Noise Public Education and Outreach Committee has released a newsletter, which is now available on the Town’s website.

You can read the full report at: www.northhempsteadny.gov/aircraftnoise.
“Airplane noise is a quality of life issue that affects our residents and these committees serve as a conduit to bring their concerns to our federal officials and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA),” said Supervisor Bosworth.
The Town of North Hempstead has created two aircraft noise committees in 2015 to help advocate for reduction in overhead aircraft noise.
Now, Supervisor Judi Bosworth has announced a newsletter will provide residents with updates on meetings between the committees and the Federal Aviation Administration, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported.
Mayor Koblenz, on Monday, April 11th, wrote to County Executive Ed Mangano and to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, Judi Bosworth, calling on them to consider immediately suing the FAA to gain equal distribution of the flight patterns. In the past, he had tried other avenues of recourse, but “they have been unavailing” he said. “Hopefully, through a law suit against the FAA we could gain some relief from the excessive noise and pollution.”
