PURPOSE OF A PART 150 STUDY

The purpose for conducting a Part 150 Study at any airport is to develop a balanced and cost-effective plan for reducing current noise impacts from an airport's operations, where practical, and to limit additional impacts in the future. Among the general goals and objectives addressed by a Part 150 Study are the following:

  • To reduce, where feasible, existing and forecasted noise levels over existing noise-sensitive land uses;

  • To reduce new noise-sensitive developments near the airport;

  • To mitigate, where feasible, adverse impacts in accordance with Federal guidelines;

  • To provide mitigation measures that are sensitive to the needs of the community and its stability;

  • To be consistent, where feasible, with local land use planning and development policies.
