    This is a total waste of time and effort.
    There is more noise now that the third runway is open and in use.
    The transit system creates noise in once quite neighborhoods and is here to stay.
    Nothing can be done to eliminate either of these sources.
    So why have a workshop? To pacify the public and let everyone know that our leaders do really care about the excessive noise and our hearing health?
    What else…

    • I think I’ve noticed that when the weather is terrific, like recently, they change the usual north-to-south direction of landings and takeoffs. That’s when the noise gets really bad where I live – near 3 Tree Point – when the planes go from south-to-north, which is not very often, but when they do it gets very noisy. Anyone else notice this?
