Community Engagement Strategies and Techniques 49 Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport: Real Estate and Land Use Compatibility Planning Quarterly Noise Report, First Quarter 2007 (89) 4-105 This quarterly Report provides a review of the aviation noise abatement program and includes updates on various types of aircraft operations, noise levels at noise monitoring sites, and updated information on the Noise Assistance Programs. Seattle Tacoma International Airport, 2006 Annual Technical Report (90) 4-106 The Airport Noise Programs Annual Technical Report for 2006 details various noise abatement initiatives and major accomplishments, and also provides pertinent airport facts and statistics. Phoenix Aviation Department, Aviation Noise Report 2006 Year End Review (92) 4-107 This report reviews the aircraft activity and noise measurement data for the year 2006 for Sky Harbor International Airport, Deer Valley Airport, and Goodyear Airport. It is formatted as a PowerPoint presentation, but available in printed form. Portland International Airport, Noise Abatement Annual Report 2000 (91) 4-108 The Port of Portland provided a comprehensive document that incorporated a report on noise conditions for the year, illustrations of noise abatement procedures and techniques, annual activity information, and a noise primer for the lay person into a single document for broad distribution. Partnership for AiR Transportation and Noise Emissions Reduction. Report to the United States Congress - AVIATION AND THE ENVIRONMENT - A National Vision Statement, Framework for Goals and Recommended Actions (93) 4-109 This document reports the results of a study mandated by the U.S. Congress in December 2003 as part of the Vision 100 Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (H.R. 2115, Public Law 108- 176)(140). Section 321 of the legislation mandates that the Secretary of Transportation, in consultation with the Administrator of NASA, shall conduct a study of ways to reduce aircraft noise and emissions and to increase aircraft fuel efficiency. Fifty-nine stakeholders from 38 organizations spanning the aerospace industry including NASA, FAA, EPA, the Department of Commerce (DOC), the Department of Defense (DoD), academia, local governments, and community activists actively participated in the planning process. Partnership for AiR Transportation and Noise Emissions Reduction. Research Projects (94) 4-110 This report provides a summary of 14 projects being conducted under the PARTNER Program. They include: Low Frequency Noise Study; Measurement, Metrics, and Health Effects of Noise; Valuation and Trade-offs of Policy Options; Continuous Descent Arrival; En Route Traffic Optimization to Reduce Environmental Impact; Land Use Management and Airport Controls; Sonic Boom Mitigation; Measurement of Emissions; NoiseQuest; Health Impacts of Aviation- Related Air Pollutants; Emissions Atmospheric Impacts; Lateral Alignment in Complex Systems; Environmental Design Space; Energy Policy Act Study; Investigation of Aviation Emissions Air Quality Impacts; Alternative Fuels; and Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums. Multimedia Presentations Description. Multimedia presentations utilize a combination of text, images, sounds and other interactive content forms. These types of presentations are useful in their ability to make an impact and convey messages to a wide audience. Some multimedia presentations allow two-way commu- nication that enables viewers to respond by voice or on-line; a further refinement of technology uses cameras and special connections at both ends so that participants can see and hear one another.

50 Aircraft Noise: A Toolkit for Managing Community Expectations Lessons for Airport Managers. Multimedia presentations provide direct or immediate knowledge as compared with a writ- ten summary document. They can help people grasp a concept, understand complex pro- grams, and absorb large amounts of information quickly. Making project staff available for community speeches and presentations will signal the air- port's commitment to public involvement. Because the presentation is delivered in person, the audience has a chance to ask questions, and the presenter can gauge citizens' concerns and seek greater clarification of misunderstand- ings. Also, many people can be reached at one time, reducing individual inquiries. Presentations require substantial effort to be effective. A poorly planned presentation can dis- tort residents' views of the situation and cost the airport credibility. Example Best Practices. The following multimedia presentations were chosen as best prac- tice examples: San Diego County Regional Airport Authority Six-Part Noise series (95-100). 4-115 - 4-116 A six-part series of "Noise 101" presentations were prepared for the public by San Diego County Regional Airport Authority on behalf of the San Diego International Airport, to dis- cuss the basics of aircraft noise and the airport's noise program, rules, regulations, and other components. Broward County Aviation Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. FAR Part 150 Noise Compatibility Study presentation. (101) 4-117 This Power Point presentation provides an overview of Part 150 Study tasks for its Public Hearing on the consultant's recommended Part 150 actions. Boston Logan Community Advisory Committee Potential Flight Track Alternatives. (102) 4-118 The FAA in conjunction with Massachusetts Port Authority and the Logan Airport Commu- nity Advisory Committee (CAC) has undertaken a study of how to reduce noise impacts from aircraft overflights to and from Boston Logan International Airport. This study is known as the Boston Overflight Noise Study. This presentation provides illustrative graphics for poten- tial flight track alternatives. Using Supplemental Metrics to Address the Effects of Noise on People. TRB Annual Meeting. January 22, 2007. (103) 4-119 This presentation provides an overview of Supplemental Metrics and presents case studies of their application. It makes the case that with the increased transparency provided by these effect metrics, policy makers and concerned citizens can engage in a more informed discus- sion that could ultimately lead to better outcomes for all. International Civil Aviation Organization--The Balanced Approach to Aircraft Noise Management presentation. (104) 4-120 This presentation provides a brief summary on the International Civil Aviation Organization's approach to aircraft noise management including: why it was developed; what it aims to achieve; how it works; and revisions and implementation. Dane County Regional Airport. Noise Abatement Subcommittee - Review of Noise Complaint Activity presentation. April 18, 2007 (105) 4-121 This presentation for the Noise Abatement Subcommittee provides an overview of: Aircraft Movements; Complaints By Aircraft Type and Area; and Proactive Measures.
