Rep. Don Beyer hosts January 16 Helicopter Noise Forum
Rep. Don Beyer is hosting a helicopter noise on Tuesday, January 16, at Abingdon Elementary, from 7:30 to 9 pm. The forum will include staff from the Department of Defense. View the attached flyer for more details. Register online at: www.beyer.house.gov (click on “Community Forum on Helicopter Noise”)
The Forum will be for community members to provide feedback to the Department of Defense (DOD) and is part of a study Rep. Beyer had included in the last year’s Defense Authorization Act. The provision was proposed by Rep. Beyer in response to frequent complaints from constituents about excess noise from military helicopters. It directs DOD to study changes to the region’s helicopter flight routes, operating procedures, and types of helicopters flown in the national capital airspace to mitigate the effect of noise on the region’s neighborhoods.
Attendees who want to speak during the comment period will line-up at the microphone. The Forum will not be videotaped but attendees can do so. The availability of streaming on Twitter and Facebook will be announced in the days leading up to the Forum.
If you have any questions, please contact Noah Simon, District Director, Office of Congressman Don Beyer, 703-658-5403, or Noah.Simon@mail.house.gov.
