The CENAC (Community Environment & Noise Advisory Committee) held a public meeting Dec. 6th. With the airport set to expand and increase the number of flights overhead, noise mitigation has been a hot button topic amongst several communities. A five year plan called “Growing Responsibly” was presented and is available online which outlines commitments related to the responsibilities of the GTAA over noise management. Here is the link to read the full report.
Of note, the committee has recommended that Noise Sharing (which would have affected our neighbourhood on weekends will NOT happen. This is good news for our community.
Also, no new runways are scheduled to be built. The expansion can occur using the existing key East/West runways. The North-South runways will only be used as needed. Again, this is good news for our community.
