BOAC Board of Airport Commissioners (VNY) Meeting

WHAT: The Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the governing body for Van Nuys Airport (VNY), is having a regularly scheduled meeting. They have been working with the FAA on an immediate solution for VNY that will not impair any near-term solutions that BUR is separately working on. LAWA, which is a City of Los Angeles entity, has been very supportive in our efforts to bring immediate relief for residents who have been severely impacted by changes in the last year by VNY aircraft. They have been working on a solution since February after we urged the City Council to pass a motion. More information about that is here.

We request that anyone who speaks to please thank the Board for their efforts, politely and respectfully, while stressing the urgency for immediate implementation of solutions due to the noise impact and other risks including the 90% Fire Hazard Severity Zone of the Santa Monica Mountains area.

LOCATION:
Samuel Greenberg Board Room 107,
Clifton A. Moore Administration Building
LAX, 1 World Way, Los Angeles, 90045

Suggested to arrive by 9:30 AM. Enter the building from the south entrance and sign in. Fill out a speaker card outside of the room.
