We encourage the pubic to send noise complaints via email to ccairport@cuyahogacounty.us, call (216) 289-4111 or send correspondence by mail to 26300 Curtiss Wright Parkway, Richmond Heights, Ohio 44143.

All noise complaints will be logged, however, in order for the noise complaint to be researched they must be submitted within 72 hours of the event. Once a compliant is received, the local municipality will be notified that we are in receipt of a complaint. Airport research will begin immediately and a written response will be sent upon the conclusion of the research to both the resident and local municipality.

Should the findings conclude an aircraft operated during the hours of the noise abatement, we will send a letter notifying the operator of the complaint and remind them of the voluntary noise abatement program.

What projects are currently underway?
The County is currently working with airport planning experts to develop a Master Plan Update and a Runway Safety Area (RSA) study; as well as maintenance and rehabilitation projects for the airfield and County-owned buildings.
