As indicated in the January 2024 Quarterly Newsletter Mayor’s Message, the FAA is instituting new RNAV (area navigation) procedures which could increase the aircraft noise levels in Sunfish Lake. We are hopeful the FAA will have two virtual and at least one in-person public meetings regarding RNAV in 2024 before installing the system in 2025. It is urgent for SFL residents to attend these meetings to ensure the current Draft procedures are modified.

We will put notices of those meetings on this area of our website as well as sending email notification to all who have signed up for emails from the City.

Here is a link to a 1-22-2024 letter sent by the SFL Council urging modification of the current Draft:  Click here for copy of letter

As further indicated in the January 2024 Newsletter, the NOC (Noise Oversight Committee) is a collaborative group with all communities working together to abate noise problems. In response to our 1-22-24 letter, see the link below for the January 2024 Noise Oversight Committee Recommendations to the FAA regarding the RNAV (Area navigation) system to be installed in 2025. I was able to get the Committee to add a protective sentence for SFL, which I have highlighted on the third page of the NOC 1-31-24 Recommendations.
