7:30 am-9:30 am
Abingdon Elementary School
Congressman Don Beyer will host a community forum on helicopter noise Jan 16 from 7:30—9:00pm at Abingdon Elementary School 3035 S Abingdon St in Arlington.
The forum will be for community members to provide feedback to the Department of Defense (DOD) and is part of a study Rep. Beyer had included in the last year’s Defense Authorization Act. The provision was proposed by Rep. Beyer in response to frequent complaints from constituents about excess noise from military helicopters. It directs DOD to study changes to the region’s helicopter flight routes, operating procedures, and types of helicopters flown in the national capital airspace to mitigate the effect of noise on the region’s neighborhoods.
