Community Noise Reduction Program

An exterior photo of Phoenix

The city of Phoenix Aviation Department offered voluntary sound-mitigation and relocation programs for nearly two decades to those living and working within noise-impacted areas surrounding Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. In that 20-year span, the noise has reduced significantly and FAA program requirements have changed. The city's sound-mitigation program has ended and the airport no longer provides sound insulation.
