Noise Compatibility Committee

Established in 1997, the Noise Compatibility Committee comprises local residents and volunteers who donate their time and expertise to help maintain a high quality of life in Naples.

The nine-member committee meets regularly to review the Airport Noise Abatement Program and make appropriate recommendations to airport staff and the authority. Committee members and airport staff are available to give presentations and answer any aircraft noise-related questions.
