Los Angeles World Airports, working closely with local Council offices, implemented an Airport Residential Soundproofing Program (RSP) for aircraft noise impacted in the City of Los Angeles.
The program covered residential buildings in areas of the City of Los Angeles that are in the 65 dB CNEL noise contour shown on the 4Q92 Contour map.
of the Residential Soundproofing Program
Soundproofing Program began in 1997 with implementation of the first
soundproofing project in Playa del Rey and Westchester. At that time, LAWA
opened a community office in Westchester, which remained open to the public
until September 2009. Two demonstration homes, one in each of the areas
included in the City's RSP in Westchester and South Los Angeles, were used to
showcase the noise mitigation products available to homeowners. After an
extensive outreach effort to contact all eligible homeowners, the final
deadline for participation in the program was issued for June 1,
2010. During the duration of the program, LAWA soundproofed
over 7,300 residential dwelling units in the City of Los Angeles near
time, the LAX Soundproofing Program is complete and soundproofing is not
offered to new participants. LAWA understands there are some homeowners in
the City who feel that their homes are impacted by aircraft
noise. If you would like to file a comment about aircraft noise, you
may contact Noise Management by calling the dedicated 24-hour number (LAX Noise Comment Line: (424) 64-NOISE).
may still contact the LAX Soundproofing Office at (424) 646-7444 with any additional questions.
