Noise is one of the most basic land-use compatibility concerns. At major airports and light rail systems, noise is often the most recognized impact felt by the general public. Jones Payne is aware that the tools used to define noise impacts and the planning documents that are created to address those impacts may not provide the assistance required to implement a successful noise mitigation program.
We provide implementation support services to airports, transit authorities and transportation planning firms, ensuring that critical tools are equipped with the necessary measures to produce desired outcomes. In addition to helping develop NEM’s and NCP’s, Jones Payne provides cost data for programs across the country, identifies land-use issues that can significantly impact program implementation, and conducts research that has influenced national policy. The expertise we have developed – from implementing noise mitigation programs for over 30 years – has proven to be an invaluable part of the planning process.
