Meeting Held to Discuss Solutions to Helicopter Noise

helicopter-houseGRIFFITH PARK (KTLA) — Local residents were given the opportunity Monday to air their views on the problem of helicopter noise across Los Angeles County.

Lawmakers, homeowners, and pilots met Monday night to discuss possible solutions to excessive helicopter noise in residential areas.

Homeowners have long complained of the disruptions caused by all sorts of helicopter traffic – from news choppers, paparazzi, tour operators and public safety agencies, Rep. Adam Schiff said.

According to the Burbank lawmaker, the noise pollution emanating from these low-flying helicopters is concentrated to high decibel levels by the unique terrain of canyons and valleys in the County.

And many residents agreed.

“It wakes us up, it’s more than just a little annoyance,” Donna Sievers said.

Sherman Oaks homeowner Wayne Williams told the panel the noise is dangerously loud.

“We want them to follow regulations so they don’t make life miserable for others, Williams said.
