[ARCHIVED] O'Hare Airplane Noise

The original item was published from August 4, 2017 10:47 AM to January 1, 2019 12:25 AM

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.
