Woodcliff Lake NJ, in December we reported that the Township of Mahwah aircraft noise complaints were spiraling . The amount of low flying aircraft over Mahwah appeared to have increased significantly . Now mayors in several Bergen County towns say their residents are being disturbed by an increase in noise from planes out of Teterboro Airport, and they want more say over the situation. For months the towns in what is called the Pascack Valley have been logging and collecting data on the amount of noise complaints from their residents .
No the Pascack Valley’s Mayors’ Association is taking action asking the noise abatement committee to allow a representative from their region to join. The association comprises elected officials from Emerson, Hillsdale, Montvale, Old Tappan, Oradell, Park Ridge, River Vale, Washington Township, Westwood and Woodcliff Lake.
The Teterboro Aircraft Noise Abatement Advisory Committee (TANAAC) was established on February 26, 1987. The main purpose of the committee was to establish a meaningful dialogue between the airport community and the residential communities. The primary goal of the committee is to work collaboratively with the airport management and Federal Aviation Administration in an effort to enhance the quality of life of the residents of local communities while ensuring the continued efficient operation of the airport.
TANAAC is comprised of the locally elected officials or their duly appointed alternates, and members of the aviation community.
