Under Group B of the 2006 Residential Program, 190 homes in Bensenville, 138 in Park Ridge, 14 in Schiller Park, 189 in Norwood Park Township (Unincorporated Cook County), 107 in Wood Dale, and 132 in Chicago will receive sound insulation, according to a determination by ONCC’s Residential Sound Insulation Committee. In addition, 260 homes in Des Plaines and Wood Dale are scheduled for sound insulation later this year, under the program’s first phase.

The ONCC earlier announced commitment of a total of $21.6 million in funding for fiscal 2007 to the O’Hare Residential Sound Insulation Program. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will commit $18 million in FAA Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding for fiscal year 2007. An additional $3.6 million will be matched by City of Chicago Passenger Facility Charges (PFC).

The Program is now funded 80% by FAA Airport Improvement Program (AIP) monies, with a 20% match from the City of Chicago.

“The Commission is taking an aggressive approach to insulating O’Hare area residents from aircraft noise that could occur after these new runways are operational,” said the ONCC’s Residential Sound Insulation Committee Chair, Cook County official Frank Damato. “We can be very proud of what the sound insulation program has already achieved, and we want to build on that record of progress of mitigating aircraft noise impacts,” Damato added.

The O’Hare Residential Sound Insulation Program is now focused on the future and relies on a noise contour based on the new runway layout under the O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP).

Beginning with construction this summer in Des Plaines, eligible single-family and multi-family residential buildings will be sound-insulated in areas the FAA projects will be

affected by aircraft noise upon completion of the OMP. Therefore, the Residential Program will be addressing noise issues in advance, as the OMP progresses.
The FAA assigned the ONCC specific responsibilities in its Record of Decision for the OMP, as O’Hare Airport is reshaped. ONCC’s responsibilities include continued oversight of those areas around the airport where aircraft noise is likely to occur as new runways are constructed.

The O’Hare Residential Sound Insulation Program, operated by the City of Chicago, funded by the FAA and City of Chicago and overseen by the ONCC, began as a ten-home demonstration project in 1995.

“We continue to make tremendous progress with this program,” said ONCC Chair Arlington Heights Mayor Arlene J. Mulder. “All of the stakeholders involved in this program should be commended for their participation in making this one of the best run sound insulation programs of its kind in the country.”

The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (oharenoise.org) began working in 1996 to bring together the parties that are most able to reduce aircraft noise with representatives of communities affected by aircraft noise in a partnership to address jet noise at its impact and sources.

The Commission's current membership includes the villages of Arlington Heights, Bartlett, Bellwood, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Harwood Heights, Hoffman Estates, Maywood, Melrose Park, Mount Prospect, Niles, Norridge, Palatine, River Grove, River Forest, Rosemont, Schaumburg and Stone Park; and the cities of Des Plaines, Northlake, Oak Park, Park Ridge, Rolling Meadows, Wood Dale and Chicago; Cook County; and school districts 59 (Elk Grove Village, Des Plaines, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect), 63 (Des Plaines, Niles, Morton Grove and Glenview), 80 (Norridge), 81 (Schiller Park), 84 (Franklin Park), 84½ (River Grove), 85½ (River Grove), 86 (Harwood Heights), 87 (Berkeley, Northlake, Bellwood), 88 (Bellwood, Melrose Park, Stone Park) 89 (Maywood, Melrose Park and Broadview ), 214 (Elk Grove Village, Des Plaines, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, Rolling Meadows, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Buffalo Grove), 234 (Norridge, Harwood Heights), 299 (Chicago Public Schools) and 401 (Elmwood Park).
