Welcome to Milwaukee County's GENERAL MITCHELL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - Community Noise Program

Noise Compatibility Programs at GMIA

General Mitchell International Airport (GMIA) is committed to reducing the effects and exposure of aircraft noise whenever possible.

GMIA has a long-standing history of working with surrounding communities and the airlines to address aircraft noise concerns and remains dedicated to keeping aircraft noise reduction a priority. GMIA continually strives to strike the right balance between the needs of air travelers and the needs of area residents living close to flight paths.

The information below outlines some of GMIA's Community Noise Management Programs.

 

Milwaukee County's Airport Area Noise Management Program (NMP)

A federal program managed locally by Milwaukee County's General Mitchell International Airport, the NMP is a voluntary program that represents GMIA's commitment to reducing aircraft noise for airport neighbors.

The program can assist single and multi-family dwellings built before October 1998 and located within the noise boundary indentified by the FAA as eligible for participation.

The NMP provides sound mitigation benefits as recommended in the GMIA Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150 Noise Compatibility Study.
