Severna Park residents hope to cut BWI noise

The Greater Severna Park Council BWI Airport Committee wants to meet with airport and state aviation officials to work on a noise-reduction plan for the community.

The committee of residents wants to develop a proposal that would divert air traffic from over the community to a path over Interstate 97.

The Federal Aviation Administration has said that safety concerns limit to 10 percent the number of airplanes that can use the I-97 approach path. Relief may come in other ways, however.

Bob Talbot, the noise director at the Maryland Aviation Administration, has said that a proposed east-west runway and federal requirements to shift to quieter Stage 3 aircraft will help reduce noise.

The GSPC committee has asked USAir to voluntarily use Stage 3 craft, committee Chairman Rick Zablocki said.

The committee wants to meet with the tower manager at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the MAA noise director, the Severna Park Reduction of Airplane Racket Committee and a USAir representative.
