Regarding most of the noise complaints coming from Pleasanton, and most of those coming from 2 households -- IMO the low noise reporting number is that 1) most people are not aware that there's a Livermore website where you can complain, 2) that website is not an efficient way to report over a typical 10-20 complaints a day where it to track properly, and people just don't have time in their busy schedules unfortunately! Don't be mislead by the low complaint numbers, the increasing noise from the planes and jets has become a severe disruption to what once was a peaceful, quiet area.

More of us feel the pain of the noise. Some are more proactive. I bet for every compliant you are receiving there are 10 that are thinking about writing it up.

The number of jets keeps increasing which is by far the biggest issue. I don't mind the airport too much, but I feel like I need to start complaining so they don't try to push through the expansion and things they keep talking about.

The airport has been operating since 1965. I always find it mind boggling that people move into a neighborhood under a flight path of an airport then complain about the noise. Jets have been operating out of LVK since its opening.

Mike -

We all know we are near or under a flight path, but I know pilots have deviated from path, flown lower than they should and violated timing restrictions as well.

That coupled with an increase in traffic is what we are talking about here.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
