Noise Compatibility Program
2015 Noise Study Results
The Boise Airport completed a voluntary noise study in accordance with the FAA in 2015. The noise study was accepted and approved by the FAA in August 2016. The study looks at current noise contours and forecasts future noise contours. The study also provides a list of possible noise mitigation efforts. The following were approved noise abatement measures and land use measures in the 2015 study:
- Preferential runway use
- Voluntary residential property acquisition within and adjacent to DNL 65+ contour
- Undeveloped property acquisition within DNL 65+ dB contour
- Purchase of avigation easements
- Implement a sound insulation program
- Initiate a noise monitoring system
Upcoming Open House
The airport will hold an open house on January 25, 2017 to gather input regarding which abatement measures are most important to residents who live within the noise contours or near the airport.
The airport will hold two identical hour long open house sessions.
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
