Fall Listening Session – Metropolitan Airports Commission

The public is invited to join the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) at the MAC General Offices, on October 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM for the NOC Fall Listening Session.

The Noise Oversight Committee (NOC) sponsors quarterly meetings for citizens to allow for an engaging, two-way dialogue between the public and the MAC committee tasked with addressing MSP aviation noise topics.

We are seeking citizen input to generate ideas for topics that could be included in the 2019 NOC Work Plan. The goal of this meeting is to collaboratively develop NOC Work Plan recommendations that are important to airport neighbors.
