Research to Examine Land Use Decisions and their Relation to Airport Noise Concerns and Complaints

The project's focus was primarily on assessment of how incompatible land use impacts airports, and how this fuels noise concerns and complaints. The research team worked closely with airport administrators, civic leaders, and aviation organizations to identify and collect data concerning the most prominent issues precipitated by the incompatible land uses. Useful data was collected from personal interviews and focus groups, which provided a balanced view of the noise complaint data.
