Aircraft Noise Complaints for JFK, LGA, EWR, TEB, or SWF Airports:
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 TVASNAC defining mission is to require the Port Authority and FAA to implement arrival and departure procedures to mitigate the scourge of aircraft noise that currently plagues our suburban communities.
The following Town of Hempstead villages are members of TVASNAC:
NOTE – The September meeting is the 3rd Monday of the month, as the 4th Monday of the month falls on Yom Kippur
