Many airports seek to understand their impacts on neighboring towns, cities, and regions through economic impact analyses, employment studies, and environmental studies, such as those that focus on sustainability efforts or noise.
The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Research Report 221: Measuring Quality of Life in Communities Surrounding Airports addresses an emerging need for airports to take a more holistic look at how they affect their neighbors and how they can build stronger community relationships. Airports can benefit from a more comprehensive understanding of the variables affecting their surrounding communities, over which they may have little to no control.
Supplemental materials to the report include a Quality of Life Assessment Survey Tool, a Dataset, and a Sample Quality of Life Assessment Introduction PowerPoint.
