Well glory be - finally in Park Ridge! “O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission Chair and Mayor of Mount Prospect Arlene Juracek, with the approval of the Executive Committee, appointed the City of Park Ridge to fill a vacancy on the Fly Quiet Committee following the resignation of the Chicago Ward 41 representative, Catherine Dunlap. ” Now we can’t be ignored, and we will have a voice - hopefully a strong voice - on this important committee. Way to go Park Ridge. One small step toward a healthier, cleaner, quieter Park Ridge. But, don’t start popping the corks just yet.

Planes start over Norridge @ 5:40 every morning. and lasts for hours . then again between 3pm & 7 pm. It probably doesn’t bother people who aren’t outside but it’s just not a “fuss over nothing” it’s a true problem trying to carry on aconversation in your own backyard. and you can’t until the plane passes. If I’m inside watching TV with my windows open; I have to pause the TV because I miss what is said as the plane passes above. that being said . I luv living here , but could use a little quiet 😊

For all the complainers out there, I use to live there and it didn’t bother me. If it bothers you all, then move further away. The airport has been there before most people lived around there.

If you can’t handle the noise don’t move near airports

They should pay for new, sound reducing windows and doors for all of us, just like they did in Norridge

Perhaps not, but it's a step forward.

So yes, Ohare’s new configuration and the new flight patterns have a disproportionate impact on Park Ridge. This brings noise, which is a serious health concern. People that discount it or tell us to get over it, do not care about our Park Ridge community. We need to make that clear to them. We need to tell them that we don’t appreciate them and they should consider finding another place to live. But another thing that should be discussed is that this brand new flight configuration also brings unprecedented jet fuel pollution that falls directly on Park Ridge and its residents. We have never experienced this level of jet pollution historically. At the very least the children of Park Ridge deserve better. The elderly as well.
