Here is the most recent information from Ward 13 Council Member Betsy Hodges regarding the proposed changes at MSP airport:
There is an important and fast-moving issue that I have heard from many of you about. In a nutshell, the airport wants to change where they fly planes in a way that will have more of them flying over our homes. They are not seeking sufficient public input on the change or doing appropriate environmental due diligence. Your help is needed to have the City’s voice heard. There are more details below.MSP Airport is working on implementing new navigation techniques. These techniques could expose some people – including some of you – to an even greater intensity of noise. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is trying to push these changes through on an accelerated pace and without sufficient public input.
