In November of last year, Councilmember Austin, along with Councilmembers Uranga and O'Donnell, requested a study session to provide information to the City Council on the history and structure of the Airport Noise Ordinance.Long Beach is one of only a few select airports in the nation that is allowed to limit the flights and noise impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods.
