Letter: TMM Christiansen thanks Timilty et al for efforts on airplane impacts

I very much appreciate Representative Timilty’s help and letter about the critical problem of noise and pollution from the saturation of aircraft arrivals and departures over Milton.  Thanks also to the Town of Milton officials, Senator Brian Joyce, Congressmen Lynch and Capuano, and Boston City Councilor Tim McCarthy for attending the hearing and supporting the request for an extension to the incredibly short comment period regarding the two new concentrated arrival paths (RNAVs) over Milton, Hyde Park, Canton, Dorchester, Mattapan, and South Boston.

Documents from the FAA hearing last week can be found using the links below.
There is an Airplane Noise Advisory Committee meeting on Monday June 1, at 7 pm in the Cronin Conference Room in Town Hall.  The Selectmen will attend and participate in the discussion about these two new flight paths. The meeting agenda includes a brief 15 minute Citizen’s Speak. Also, on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at the Board of Selectmen meeting one agenda item will be my report as the new CAC representative.  My report includes the 4L RNAVs topic.
DPW is working with me to produce a map that shows all five RNAV paths over Milton and the flight path corridors.  In the meantime, readers might find this unofficial google map of the flight paths helpful.  The 4 GPS RNAVS have a 1.15 mile corridor on both sides of the center line. (NOTE:  The path for the 4L GPS route is approximate because FAA has not provided specific path locations to us yet.)
The current deadline for comments about the 2 new arrival RNAVs is June 5, 2015 (Friday).  Residents may send their comments by email to 9-ANE-BOS-NAV-4L@faa.gov.  I am Milton’s current Logan CAC representative and you can reach me at cLcMilton@gmail.com.  If you want more information, I will try to help. If you want to cc me on your comment to the FAA, please do.

    The Town of Milton just learned that the FAA will extend the comment period to Tuesday June 30, 2015. Again, thanks to our elected officials! As it says above, the Town’s next airplane committee meeting is Monday June 1 and the Board of Selectmen will discuss this further on June 2. Also, the Town will be posting information and updates on this topic on their website http://www.townofmilton.org starting next week.

    Another great example of Representative Timilty’s unwavering commitment to the town of Milton. Time and time again Representative Timilty will be out front fighting for the better of the town as a whole and never looks to have his name in lights or his hand out for doing what he is elected to do. We are blessed to have him on our side! Thank you Representative Timilty for your selfless determination and commitment to the town of Milton. Thank you Ms. Christiansen for your unwavering determination on this as well in fighting for Milton.
