Arlington County government officials and their consultants will update delegates to the Arlington County Civic Federation on the ongoing noise study related to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport at the federation’s Dec. 15 meeting.

The study, a collaborative effort between the governments of Arlington and Montgomery counties, has been ongoing since April. It is looking at potential route changes for departures to and arrivals from the north at the airport.

Any recommendations will be forwarded to the Federal Aviation Administration, which has the final say on aviation-traffic patterns around the nation’s airports.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held online. Pre-registration is required; for information, see the Website at

Another waste of money for a “study”! This has been studied many times for the past 35+ years for no reason. If the flight path bothers you, move somewhere else or quit whining about an airport that has most likely been here longer than you. Use any future money to help people with real problems.
