Airport Noise Settlement

Last month the Minneapolis, Richfield, and Eagan all accepted a “noise deal” from the Metropolitan Airports Commission. Apparently the settlement offers $127.6 million in noise-muffling work for residents of Minneapolis and nearby suburbs.

An estimated 432 homes will get the “full noise” package (out of an estimated 9,561 covered by the settlement). Full-package homes get measures designed to reduce indoor noise from planes by more than half. More than half of qualifying homes would get either central air conditioning and $4,000 worth of added work, or $14,000 in work if they already have central air.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission has published a web site with more details on the program such as who is covered and how you can apply.
