Print More

Residents can come discuss the impact of noise from airplanes over Watertown at an upcoming meeting of the Boston West Fair Skies group.

Organizers sent out the following information:

Boston West Fair Skies (BWFS) will hold its monthly meeting Wednesday, January 25 in Winchester.

BWFS works towards redistributing airplane noise more fairly among our communities.

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017, 7-8:30 p.m., Winchester Public Library, 80 Washington St. Winchester

We are a citizens grassroots organization which includes Arlington, Belmont, Cambridge, Medford, Somerville, Watertown and Winchester – all communities affected by the increased airplane noise due to the implementation of 33L RNAV (using GPS) departures at Boston Logan Airport. The meeting location rotates to a different town each month.

BWFS is fighting for a more equitable distribution of airplane noise. Since our creation in 2013 we have made good progress with officials at the state and national level. We are hoping that Boston Logan will soon be the first airport selected by the FAA to have RNAV departure procedures re-evaluated. Everyone affected by the increased airplane noise is strongly encouraged to join the fight.

Please join us! All are welcome!
