From the Burbank Leader:

BURBANK — After investing some $7 million to achieve a nighttime noise curfew at Bob Hope Airport, local government officials are gearing up for one last push.

A team of Burbank officials will join Mayor Gary Bric and Councilman Dave Golonski on a trip next week to the nation’s capital before the Federal Aviation Administration renders a decision by Nov. 1.

The group plans to meet with lawmakers, particularly those who oversee transportation and aviation committees, to discuss options to deliver meaningful nighttime noise relief.

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority commissioned the Part 161 Study — a roughly 800-page document required to restrict all departures and landings at Bob Hope Airport between 10 p.m. and 6:59 a.m. — after decades of noise and air pollution complaints from neighbors. FAA officials said it was the first study of its kind to make it through the review process.
