The Airport Noise Compatibility Ordinance (Noise Ordinance) for the City of Long Beach establishes a Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) noise budget for air carrier flights at Long Beach Airport set in the baseline year of 1989-1990. The Noise Ordinance requires the Airport to annually evaluate these budgets to ensure compliance with the applicable budget limits and the City’s overall goal of minimizing incompatible land uses within the 65 decibel (dB) CNEL.
An analysis and review of noise data for October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019 (Noise Year 18-19), determined that three supplemental Air Carrier flight slots are required to maintain compliance with the Noise Ordinance.
Any person may request an administrative review of the Airport’s decision not later than fifteen (15) days after the date of publication of this notice pursuant to the requirements of Section 16.43.110 of the City's Noise Ordinance, and as provided in the Allocation and Withdrawal Protocol and Administrative Review Provisions.
Copies of these documents are available for public review online at http://www.lgb.org and the Long Beach Airport administrative offices, 4100 Donald Douglas Drive, 2nd Floor, Long Beach, California, during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
