Helicopter noise problem

To be delivered to Congressman Tim Bishop, Representative Fred Thiel, Town Board of Southampton, Town Board of East Hampton, Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), and East Hampton Airport Manager Jim Brundage

Petition Statement

We, the residents of Noyac, North Sea, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor are being negatively impacted by the low flying aircraft and helicopter flight patterns currently being implemented. The loud noise and pollutants caused by these aircraft traveling in-and-out of East Hampton Airport is extremely distressing.

We petition the East Hampton Airport and the Town of East Hampton to stop these flights over our area until a joint East Hampton and Southampton Town task force, including representatives from the community, land planning experts, representatives from the FAA and representatives from both the East Hampton Town Board and the Southampton Town Board can be created.

We demand that remedies be held in public hearings to change this terrible disturbance and to explain why the noise from East Hampton’s airport is only affecting residents of Southampton Town.

We demand that a new environmental impact study be done to determine how the noise and pollution affects not only the health of the residents of the area, but also the health of the wildlife at the Morton Wildlife Preserve, that is supposed to be protected under federal law.
There are currently 498 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
