Residents have noticed more airplane noise flying over Geneva than in the past?
Geneva residents noticing more airplane traffic taking place over their
neighborhood can submit a noise complaint online to the O’Hare Compatibility Commission.
In recent years, air traffic at O’Hare International Airport has been
rerouted throughout the Chicago suburbs. Some residents have raised the
issue with the Geneva City Council, which discussed the matter in 2016.
Residents can submit their feedback directly to the O’Hare Compatibility Commission’s website
. People also can call the
commission at 800-435-9569.
The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission was established in 1996 as an
inter-governmental agency comprised of 41 municipalities, Cook County
and 16 school districts that are dedicated to reducing aircraft noise
around the airport.
The City of Geneva is not a commission member, but the agency still
welcomes community feedback from residents across the region.
