McAuliffe’s Message Announces O’Hare Noise Initiative

stop-ohare-noise-2.jpg

Since new runway patterns took effect at O’Hare Airport, I’ve heard from many of my constituents and neighbors who are now bearing the brunt of loud and disruptive noise. To make matters worse, families in affected communities weren’t given fair warning or provided with the opportunity to have their grievances taken into consideration before the changes were made.

After listening carefully to the concerns of my constituents, I have developed a three-point O’Hare Noise Initiative that outlines my blueprint to provide relief for residents affected by the flight paths. This plan is designed to balance the economic vitality of the airport while fully addressing residents’ health, safety, and economic concerns.

The McAuliffe O’Hare Noise Initiative

  1. Order local federal hearings so residents of the 20th District can express their opinions regarding the true impact of how increased air traffic has diminished their quality of life and environment.
  2. Initiate a comprehensive noise and environmental impact study to accurately show the consequences caused by new traffic patterns at O’Hare.
  3. Deliver prompt noise relief to families through the swift expansion of sound insulation programs.

If you support the McAuliffe O’Hare Noise Initiative, you can sign this online petition and join me in the fight to bring relief to residents of the 20th District and surrounding communities who are affected by O’Hare noise.

I strongly encourage all residents and local businesses to sign the online petition and take the extra step of sharing it with a friend or neighbor. Together we can make a difference and have our voices heard.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to e-mail me at mmcauliffe20@yahoo.com or contact my office at (773) 444-0611. Thank you for the honor of serving you in the Illinois House of Representatives.

Sincerely,

Michael P. McAuliffe

McAuliffe Launches Petition Drive to Secure Relief for Homeowners Affected By O'Hare Noise

Chicago, IL – Spearheading efforts to bring relief to homeowners affected by O’Hare noise, State Representative Michael P. McAuliffe (R-Chicago) has unveiled a comprehensive, three-point O’Hare Noise Initiative and petition drive aimed at sending a strong and unified message from residents of the 20th District and surrounding communities to hold the Federal Aviation Administration accountable.

“Since the new runways took effect, I’ve heard from many of my constituents and neighbors who live near the airport that are now bearing the brunt of this loud and disruptive noise,” said Rep. McAuliffe. “We must come together as a community and push for a solution that balances the economic vitality of the airport while fully addressing residents’ health, safety, and economic concerns.”

The McAuliffe O’Hare Noise Initiative and petition outlines Rep. McAuliffe’s blueprint to help affected communities by delivering immediate noise relief to families through the swift expansion of sound insulation programs; initiating a new, comprehensive noise and environmental impact study; and ordering local federal hearings for residents of the 20th district and surrounding areas to express the true impact of how increased air traffic has diminished their quality of life and environment.

“Because of the new traffic patterns, different neighborhoods are being exposed to safety and risk factors. To make matters worse, homeowners in these communities weren’t given fair warning or provided with the opportunity to have their grievances taken into consideration before the changes were made. We need to do everything we can to help families in these communities,” said Rep. McAuliffe. “I highly encourage all residents and local businesses to sign the online petition and take the extra step of sharing with a friend or neighbor. Together we can make a difference and get our voices heard.”
