LA GETS A “WIN” IN THE BUR TERMINAL CASE!
In its decision, the Ninth Circuit directed the “FAA to address the deficiency in its construction noise analysis, the resulting deficiency in its cumulative impacts analysis, and the resulting deficiency in its environmental impacts analysis.” Though a partial win, it will delay construction of BUR’s new terminal.
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.
