Noise Abatement Council
Cuyahoga County Airport is a public-use; general aviation reliever facility situated in the cities of Richmond Heights, Highland Heights & Willoughby Hills and also in both Cuyahoga and Lake County serving the Northeastern Ohio Region. Cuyahoga County owns the Airport. The operation and maintenance is the responsibility of the Department of Public Works under the auspices of the County Executive.
In 1977, the Board of Cuyahoga Commissioners approved the Joint Statement of County Airport and Airport Users Agreement between Cuyahoga County, the Airport Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration –Air Traffic Control Tower, and Airport Tenants, thus forming the Noise Abatement Council and establishing Joint Agreement between the Users. In 2010
, the County approved the reaffirmation of the Joint Statement with each of its stakeholders.
The County Airport recognizes the vital role the airport plays in the regional economy and wishes to find an appropriate balance between air transport activities and the abatement of aircraft noise.
Pilot Guide & Voluntary Noise Abatement Program
Aircraft Complaints and Process:
We encourage the pubic to send noise complaints via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
