Community Board 11 will vote on a resolution during its monthly meeting on Sept. 9 to call on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign legislation to combat airplane noise.
Northeast Queens residents have been complaining for more than a year about constant airplane noise over their communities after the Federal Aviation Administration initiated a new flight pattern out of LaGuardia Airport.
Jerry Iannece, CB 11’s chairman, said residents are still being plagued by consistent airplane noise.
“We’re going to ask the governor to sign off on legislation that would ensure that the airports are properly monitored for sound sensors,” he said. “The noise is sporadic in northeast Queens and it’s become a permanent thing.”
Iannece said he believes the resolution will easily pass the board.
Earlier this year, state Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, and state Assemblyman Edward Braunstein, D-Bayside, held a forum with FAA officials on the new flight patterns.
CB 11’s meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. at M.S. 158, located at 46-35 Oceania St.
