VNY REDESIGN MOVING FORWARD
LAWA announced that the VNY Redesign is moving forward. If VNY aircraft are not vectored early, they will be on a trajectory toward the Studio City hillsides. Studio City For Quiet Skies has asked LAWA/FAA to include specific modifications to protect Studio City. We will be watching the process closely, along with Councilmember Krekorian's office, and will continue to push for our modifications. It should take 18-24 months for the VNY Redesign to be completed.
CITY OF LA IS SUING RE
BURBANK AIRPORT NEW TERMINAL
City Attorney Mike Feuer announced today that the City will sue the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) alleging deficiencies in the environmental review process for the proposed replacement passenger terminal at Burbank Airport! Read Press Release HERE
We are a small, informal group of Studio City residents, made up entirely of volunteers, who want to save our formerly tranquil community, wildlife preserves, and quality of life from the current, focused, NextGen-like flight paths that moved, in late 2016, over the protected Santa Monica Mountains and foothills without notice or study - as well as from future proposed procedures that will make these flight paths permanent. We are fighting to move paths away from the High Fire Severity Zone of the Santa Monica Mountains and foothills, and for dispersal, higher altitudes, runway rotation and other noise mitigation techniques to ensure that no one neighborhood suffers disproportionately from the roar of almost 200 (and increasing) jets departing Burbank Airport daily. We are focused on raising public awareness, gaining media attention, and building a powerful coalition to fight the FAA, including support by Local, State, and Federal Representatives, the City Attorney, and powerful environmental groups such as MRCA and SMMC.
