The mission of the Town-Village Aircraft Safety & Noise Abatement Committee was established at its inception on July 1, 1966.
At that time the Presiding Supervisor of the Town of Hempstead convened the mayors of ten incorporated villages from the southwest quadrant of Nassau County to designate representatives, and form a committee.
TVASNAC was to engage the sponsor of John F. Kennedy Airport (the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey), and the Federal Aviation Administration on the issues of aircraft noise and other environmental concerns caused by the airport. For more than five decades TVASNAC has challenged the FAA and the Port Authority to improve the quality of life for residents and homeowners. The committee has grown to include additional villages affected by the changes in flight paths with the inception of Airspace Redesign and NEXTGEN.
The Committee has recently worked with the New York State Legislature (Assembly and Senate), to introduce legislation that would compel the Port Authority to conduct a Part 150 Study for JFK Airport.
The mission of the Town-Village Aircraft Safety & Noise Abatement Committee (TVASNAC) is to promote the health, safety, and quality of life for the residents of the Town of Hempstead by reducing aircraft noise. This is done by advocating our concerns to, and working with, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and other stakeholders, to find ways to reduce aircraft noise over our communities.
The following Town of Hempstead villages are members of TVASNAC:
This meeting has been scheduled so as not to coincide with religious holidays occurring in September.
