Mitigate Airport Noise

 

We live in a beautiful, unique, and economically dynamic community. SFO brings visitors from around the globe to experience the sights, sounds, food, and business of the Bay Area. The airport is part of what makes our community a global destination and hub. Unfortunately, I have heard from many constituents who have experienced increasingly frequent noise from airplanes flying overhead.

This trend in noise from flights in some homes is due to a recently implemented upgrade to the satellite navigation system that has made some landing and takeoff paths more precise and repeatable. These incidents can be frustrating and in some cases frightening for residents. I have worked to address this trend by convening community members, SFO representatives, and the Federal Aviation Administration. I will continue to push for new systems and solutions that will allow us all to enjoy our beautiful home free from incessant airport noise.
