Airport Noise/Hearing on Thursday

Since March 2016, Bannockburn has been affected by flight corridor changes at National Airport (DCA). Low altitude, loud aircraft fly daily over our neighborhood.

Our neighbor Cecily Abram has brought to our attention that the FAA is proposing additional changes. The changes "will increase and exacerbate conditions for communities already impacted by flight path changes implemented in December 2015," according to Ken Hartman, Director of the Montgomery County B-CC Regional Office.

Members of the community have an opportunity to be heard at a community meeting with Montgomery County representatives and the FAA re changed flight corridors from DCA and proposed changes that will negatively impact Bannockburn:

SEPTEMBER 15, 6:30 pm TO 9:30 pm
B-CC REGIONAL SERVICES CENTER
4805 EDGEMOOR LANE BETHESDA, MD 20814

You may also wish to review the letter that Rep. Van Hollen wrote concerning this matter:

I look forward to seeing you next Thursday.

Best Wishes,
Ted Garrett,
BCA President
