O'Hare Fly Quiet Runway Rotation:
ONCC Membership Approves Interim Runway Rotation Plan
The general membership of the O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) voted to approve an Interim Fly Quiet Nighttime Runway Rotation Plan for Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The plan could take effect late in 2018 and remain in place until the new runway is commissioned in 2020 as part of the O'Hare Modernization Program (OMP). The rotation plan approved by the commission is essentially the same runway rotation plan that was followed in Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Test 3; an eight-week rotation plan with six configurations arranged to alternate each week between parallel and diagonal runways, and rotating east flow and west flow. The ONCC recommendation now moves to the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), who in turn will develop a formal submittal to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for environmental review. The FAA's review process is anticipated to take up to 12 months.
Airplane Noise Complaints
To file a complaint about airplane noise, please use this link provided by the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission: Airplane Noise Complaints. It is important for people to submit information to document the numbers and types of issues to the Commission and the City of Chicago so that patterns can be identified and solutions be developed to address concerns.
Transportation and Engineering Division
The Transportation and Engineering Division covers a large array of tasks in the planning, design, review, construction, inspection and operation of public and private infrastructure in the Village.
One of the main responsibilities is retail, office and residential site plan review and private and public construction inspection. In addition, project design, inspection services and all project management are provided for Village projects such as the annual street project, sidewalk improvements, drainage improvements, crack sealing and other utility projects.
We also monitor the condition of facilities for vehicles and pedestrians, perform traffic safety and operational studies, coordinate with public transit agencies, and cooperate with state, county, and local jurisdictions on projects of mutual interest. Division members serve as part of an interdisciplinary team to plan, design, and operate public and private transportation facilities in a safe and efficient manner.
The Transportation & Engineering Division also provides services to residents such as drainage inspections, grading concerns, flood plain inquiries, traffic studies, signage and striping, and public transit inquiries.
