Community Engagement Strategies and Techniques 45 Posters in pilot lounges at Fixed Base Operator facilities are often a helpful approach to com- municating noise abatement issues to itinerant pilots. Example Best Practices. The following flyers and posters were chosen as best practice examples: Colorado DOT's I-70B West Project flyer (66) 4-75 Flyers were distributed for an open house for Colorado DOT's (CDOT) I-70B West Project. In addition to meeting logistics, the flyer included a map of the study corridor for reference. City of Lenexa, Kansas' Rain to Recreation posters (67) 4-76 A series of posters was designed for the City of Lenexa, Kansas' Rain to Recreation project, which promoted quality growth and development in the region while preserving natural features. Westchester County Airport. It's Not Just an Airport, It's a Neighborhood flyer (68) 4-77 This flyer explains Westchester County's Voluntary Restraint from Flying Program (com- monly referred to as the "voluntary curfew"), which asks that flights be avoided between mid- night and 6:30 a.m. each day. Naples Municipal Airport Recommended Noise Abatement Jet Aircraft Arrival & Departure Procedures (58-59) 4-78 The Naples Municipal Airport has produced a series of flyers for the pilot that may be developed as handouts or posters. The examples provided would make useful posters for a bulletin board in the local FBO pilot lounges. Newsletters Description. Newsletters are a means of direct communication to a wide audience that keeps interested people informed of previous or upcoming activities. These publications provide a level of project detail that is not usually available from other news media. They are useful if there is a need to present ongoing, detailed information or a forum for exchanging ideas, updates, announcements, and news. A newsletter uses a user-friendly, news-based format to provide regular updates, and can subsequently require significant amounts of time and resources to write and distribute. They may be prepared in either print or digital form. Lessons for Airport Managers. Newsletters and program or project status reports are useful ways to disseminate important information to stakeholders. Making them widely available can enhance their credibility. Newsletters may require significant amounts of staff time and resources, dependent upon the frequency of their preparation. Direct distribution of periodic technical reports may create confusion if they are not accom- panied by a summary. When creating a newsletter, there are six major steps to consider: deciding on content, design/ layout for readability, selecting images, proofing, printing, and mailing. Example Best Practices. The following newsletters were chosen as best practice examples: O'Hare Monitor newsletter (69) 4-79 The quarterly O'Hare Monitor relays information to the public from the Chicago O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission and documents upcoming public meetings. Noise Matters newsletter (70) 4-80 The San Diego Noise Matters newsletter is published periodically for the residents neighbor- ing San Diego International Airport.
