A noise contour map update for Dulles International will help guide local land use planning in the immediate vicinity of the airport. The maps are an update to contours prepared in 1993 that serve as the basis for the Loudoun and Fairfax counties' airport impact overlay districts zoning. This helps ensure compatible land uses surrounding the airport. Public workshops include an opportunity for individuals interested in this process to talk with subject matter experts involved in the effort. 

 

The Airports Authority formed a Local Jurisdictional Stakeholder Group in 2018, comprised of Airports Authority interdisciplinary staff, appointed professional technical staff from local governments (including Fairfax County, the Town of Herndon and Loudoun County), an airline representative and key Federal Aviation Administration officials, whose participation is essential to the success of this effort.

 

The public is welcome to submit questions and comments during these workshops, or at any time online until the conclusion of this process.
