Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Langley Air Force Base (VA) noise
Jet noise from Langley AFB to be flagged during house sales
Buyers would be notified more prominently about noise issues from Langley AFB under proposals in draft Land Use Study

HAMPTON - It's a nightmare scenario for some homebuyers but one that happens all too often, planners say.

Buyers view a property over the weekend when all's quiet and later move in only to be plagued by jet noise from a nearby military base during the week.

Now proposals associated with the draft Joint Land Use Study into the future of Langley Air Force Base aims to make sellers more forthcoming about the level of jet noise, a move they hope will avoid future conflicts in Hampton, Newport News and Poquoson.

Potential future conflicts around the base were outlined by Todd Tamburino, a senior planner with the consultants Matrix Design Group, at a public meeting in Newport News' Main Street library. It was one of three meetings this week for the public to hear about land use issues near the Air Force base. Sessions were also held in Hampton and Poquoson.
