Call to order by committee chair Mike Clancey @ 6:35 p.m.
Pete Levermore was asked to record meeting notes.
Review of agenda for this meeting, prepared by Denny Rued, was approved by all present.
Denny Rued suggested the group elect a co-chair as we sometimes have schedule conflicts and a co-chair may allow for the group to better maintain activity and contribute to the part 150 process. Pete Levermore was nominated and by group consensus the nomination was approved. Pete accepted the nomination and said he will do his best to be objective in working with the group in this position (as chair Mike Clancey already has done).
Previous committee meeting notes were reviewed and accepted as submitted.
Screenings of noise abatement measures/strategies as presented during the last public meeting were reviewed.
Mike Clancey reviewed the definition of noise abatement for the group essentially these are changes or measures taken in the air to reduce the noise levels on the ground.
A proposal was reviewed for a potential solution to equitably resolve the noise issue. It was discussed in some detail and asked to whether it would be appropriate to present at the upcoming public meeting (Feb.3). It was suggested that the proposal be titled as a "Concerned Citizens Draft Proposal". While it was acknowledged that the process had not yet had a chance to make its own recommendations, it was still the consensus to present this proposal during the next meeting.
Mike reminded us that noise mitigation measures are steps that are taken on the ground to reduce the level of noise.
Sampling of roof deposits was discussed. The airport (RAA) provided results of the few samples that have been done to date. The airport has funding left in the portion of the budget dedicated for this study. We should let people know that if they want to have their roof sampled, they should give us their name and address. Results can be distributed during later public meetings. We should make an effort to map the results and samples to be sure we get a good distribution in the surrounding airport community.
