This is an important message from the City of Cottonwood.
This City of Cottonwood staff and Airport Commission have been working to minimize the impacts of airport noise on City residents. Any solution will need to balance the rights of pilots with those of residents. The plan as approved by the Airport Commission will be presented to the Cottonwood City Council at the date and time stated above. The action plan will not require the Council to vote but rather provide direction and guidance.
The DRAFT Staff Report and Action Plan can be found on the link below. As explained within the Action Plan there are restrictions by the Federal Aviation Administration which do not allow the City to regulate aircraft and aircraft noise. There are however a few items that may reduce the impact of noise on the community. The Action Plan attempts to do the following:
- Provide suggestions for pilots who would like to fly as quietly as possible
- Limit future development which might be impacted by airport noise
- Provide education and notices for pilots visiting the area
If you have any questions, please contact:
