Join Council Member Diane Dixon for a special town hall meeting on Thursday, November 30 at 7 p.m. at Marina Park. The town hall will be held in the meeting room on the second floor of the community center.
The meeting will focus on one, important topic - the recent changes in flight departure patterns from John Wayne Airport. The changes are the result of the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen project which is designed to improve the safety and efficiency of the airspace. The local result however, is that flights are now concentrated over certain areas of town and many residents are experiencing different noise impacts from these changes. City Manager Dave Kiff will explain what steps the City is taking in response to the changes and what community members can do to help. You can also visit our website at newportbeachca.gov/jwa for a detailed explanation of the City’s response to NextGen.
(Note: The meeting will begin at 7 p.m., 30 minutes later than initially announced.)
