In May 2004, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) substantially approved many of the recommendations in Louisville International Airport’s proposed Noise Compatibility (Part 150) Program.

This approval affirmed four years of work by the more than 1,000 members of the Noise Compatibility Study Group to create a plan with the least amount of aircraft noise over the fewest number of families.

Community Noise Forum (CNF)

To monitor the implementation of the Noise Compatibility Program, the Louisville Regional Airport Authority (LRAA) convened a Community Noise Forum (CNF) that includes designated representatives from all airport stakeholders, including:

Meetings are open to the public, and are normally held the fourth Monday of every other month at 6 p.m. at the LRAA’s Administration Building, 700 Administration Drive, just east of the passenger (departing flights) terminal. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 25, 2016.
