Hearing slated for Bob Hope Airport (KBUR) noise program update

Bob Hope Airport will hold a workshop and public hearing on Monday on its proposed revision of a noise compatibility program for homes around the airfield.

The public workshop portion, where residents will be able to view displays and speak individually with the project team, will take place from 6 to 6:30 p.m. The public hearing will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Both sessions will be held at the Buena Vista Branch Library, 300 N. Buena Vista St.

Due to a reduced number of aircraft operations and the use of quieter aircraft, the recently updated noise exposure map contours for the airport have decreased since they were last developed in 2000.

Based on the decreased contours, the Federal Aviation Administration is requiring the airport to revise the eligibility boundary for its program where residents can have their homes soundproofed to reduce the impact of noise from the airport.

Residents can also submit written comments after the hearing and they must be submitted before April 17 to be included with the transcripts of the hearing and be considered in evaluation of the program.

Comments can be sent to Mark D. Hardyment, director of transportation and environmental programs, Bob Hope Airport, Part 150, Bob Hope Airport, Part 150 NCP Comments, 2627 Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA 91505, or email at
