A significant rise in the noise level from the increased numbers of helicopters and other aircraft during the last two weeks has become unbearable. Our quality of life and right to peaceful enjoyment is in jeopardy. East Hampton Airport has now ceded control to the FAA and by the End of August, the FAA plans to make the flight path over NOYAC, North Sea, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor the only permanent helicopter/aircraft route to be used to and from Manhattan.
The new proposed permanent route is for all helicopters to go North to South over Jessup’s Neck and the Morton Wildlife Preserve and over Noyac, North Sea, Bridgehampton and parts of Sag Harbor. The noise affects a wide swath of residential properties from here to the airport.
Our property values will forever be negatively impacted by this noise and pollution.
