Louisville International Airport Draft Noise Exposure Map Update – Public Review
The Louisville Regional Airport Authority (LRAA) has developed a draft update to its Noise Exposure Map for the Louisville International Airport in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidelines, known as Part 150. Part 150 is a voluntary federal program administered by the FAA that sets guidelines for aircraft noise exposure, and in establishing programs to minimize incompatibilities with surrounding land uses. The Draft Noise Exposure Map and accompanying documentation are available for public review beginning Friday, November 4, 2016 for 30 days (Monday, December 5, 2016):
The documents are also available to view at the following locations:
• Louisville Free Public Library – Main Branch (301 York Street, Louisville, KY 40203)
• Airport Authority Administrative Offices (Review at the Administrative Offices is during normal business hours on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Please call (502) 363-8516 to schedule an appointment.)

In addition, a Public Workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Fourth Presbyterian Church (3016 Preston Hwy, Louisville, KY). This will be an open house format where the public is invited to review the map and other displays and ask questions regarding the Part 150 process at the Airport. A short presentation summarizing the process and results will take place at 5:30 p.m. The public will have the opportunity to provide any written comments (or oral comments to a court recorder).
