Airport Noise

The city of Aurora spans more than 164 square miles, so it is no surprise that our community experiences impacts from five area airports. The city has protective zoning regulations for new development and redevelopment projects to assure that land uses are compatible with airport operations.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Defense use computer models to average the impact of noise from aircraft operations over 365 days. They implement a 10-decibel penalty for nighttime operations, because those overflights seem much louder without daytime background noise from traffic and daily activity. The noise contours for each airport are based on these computer models have been incorporated into the city's zoning regulations.   

If a community member is experiencing excessive noise from aircraft operations, there are resources available online and from airport noise office staff.
