The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. Parking is available off Elton Road, in the rear of the country club.
The meeting is being held in Stewart Manor for just the second time in the committee's history. It's normally held in the village of Lawrence.
The Village of Garden City is a TVASNAC member.
Guest speaker Janet McEneaney, president of Queens Quiet Skies, will discuss the environmental law related to LaGuardia and JFK airports. Mceneaney, who has been lobbying for and educating communities on legislation that calls for the Port Authority to enact a Part 150 Study, will advise the TVASNAC board and those in attendance about the public comment period, which closes Sept. 30.
Days before the 2013 legislative session closed, the New York State Assembly passed a bill that requires the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey (PA) to conduct a noise and land use compatibility study to better address the rise in aircraft noise over Long Island.
Sen. Kemp Hannon sponsored the Senate bill, which passed on May 20. Assemblymen Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square), among the legislation's co-sponsors, said the study will help determine the best use of certain runways and flight paths of planes coming in and out of LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports and use federal funding to solve this "growing problem."
Officials are hoping the noise study will elevate the conversation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Port Authority. Once the study is complete, federal funding will become available for mitigation measures to provide some relief to residents on the ground, especially during the summer.
