Addressing Airport Noise Pollution

While the City of Minneapolis recognizes the value that the airport brings to the Twin Cities, it also believes that our residents deserve protection from noise pollution. Elected officials and City staff actively monitor airport development proposals and operational changes that could impact our residents’ enjoyment of their homes and neighborhoods. The City and its partners have a long history of advocating for noise mitigation and for a more fair distribution of airport impacts throughout the metro rather than overburdening a single community.

The complex issues surrounding airport noise involve many governmental entities and can continually change in response to new navigation technology, long-term weather patterns, or trends regarding the type of planes in use by commercial airlines or cargo carriers. City officials are working hard to monitor these developments, protect your interests, and help you stay informed. Engaged residents are important partners in this effort.
