The Van Nuys Airport Citizens Advisory Council will hear from one of its members about ways to deal with airport noise, including land-use planning methods of alleviating the effects of aircraft noise on residents.
Sandor Winger will report at Tuesday's council meeting on ideas discussed at a National Organization for a Sound-Controlled Environment conference, which he attended in July.
"I'd like to see what we can do to take a look at the surrounding area and see what we would suggest to do in helping homeowners," Winger said. Among the suggestions were FAA grants available to help insulate homes in the immediate area of the noise.
"It's a remedy," he said. "It may not be a perfect remedy, but it's a good one. It's a realization that we have to do something different."
