NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Noise Abatement Procedures are for General Aviation airplanes/pilots.

Noise Abatement procedures

1. Noise abatement procedures at the Renton Municipal Airport are voluntary measures by pilots to "fly friendly" and be good neighbors to the citizens who live under aircraft flight paths. Pilots should deviate from these procedures only when necessary to comply with any Air Traffic Control requests or in the interests of safety. Pilots oflarge or turbine-powered aircraft must comply with the provisions of FAR 91.129(e), rather than these procedures.

2. For aircraft with a constant speed propeller: After takeoff, Pilots should reduce power and propeller RPM when at a safe altitude at or below 700'. The power and propeller may be increased when clear of noise sensitive areas or 2,000'. On approach for landing, pilots should not increase the propeller to full RPM until the power has been
reduced to final approach power.

3. For departures which remain in the traffic pattern: Pilots should climb at Best Rate of Climb (Vy) or Best Angle of Climb (Vx), or a combination thereof, to at least 700' before turning crosswind, reduce pitch to Cruise Climb speed during crosswind, reduce power to pattern power at 1,000', and fly a close-in downwind West of I-405. Pilots should avoid descent over Kenneydale and Renton East Hill below 800', turning base before these areas or maintaining altitude as necessary to fly over them at or above 800'.

4. For departures leaving the traffic pattern: Pilots should climb at Best Rate of Climb (Vy) or Best Angle of Climb (Vx), or a combination thereof, until reaching 1,000' and thereafter at Cruise Climb speed to departure altitude.

Status
Sound Insulation (Residences and Public Buildings)
Renton Airport Compatible Land Use Program Report

12/2004

Policy:
Encourage master planning of land to increase land use Compatibility through sound attenuation in the environment.

Development Standard:
Within the Airport Influence Area, master planning can increase land use compatibility through utilization of outdoor sound attenuation techniques, such as:
- Place uses with highest sensitivity to noise at greater distances, in consideration of the factor of distance from the source.
- Consider creation of micro climates to utilize mitigating meteorological conditions (i.e. air temperature, wind direction and velocity).
- Create soft ground surfaces such as vegetative ground cover, rather than hard surfaces.
- Provide at appropriate heights structures, terrain, or other barriers to provide attenuation of sound.

Also - see information under avigation easements below.

Avigation Easements
Renton Airport Compatible Land Use Program Report

12/2004

Policy:
At the time of land use approval (i.e. subdivision) avigation easements should be granted to the City in areas of the City of Renton subject to negative aircraft overflight impacts.

Development Standard:
Avigation easements shall ensure that aircraft using Renton Airport are not trespassing on private property.

Policy:
At the time of land use approval (i.e. subdivision) deed notices should be recorded in areas of the City of Renton subject to negative aircraft overflight impacts.

Development Standard:
Recorded deed notices shall consist of "buyers notification" that inform prospective purchasers that the land subject to the notification may have impacts from noise, vibration, fumes and emissions.
Policy:
Approval of residential land use or other land uses where noise sensitive activities may occur should require dedication of avigation easements and use of acoustic materials (i.e. insulation, sound attenuating window glass) for structures.

Development Standard:
It is recommended that avigation easements and restrictive covenants should read as follows:
....By virtue of this easement the grantor, for and on behalf of himself and all successors in interest to any and all of the real property above described, waives, as to the public authority only, any and all claims for damage of any kind whatsoever as a result of aircraft using the "Navigable Airspace" granted herein. This easement does not grant or convey any surface use rights, nor is it to be construed to grant any right to private persons or corporations..."
The notice may include the following disclosure:
"This property may be subject to considerable noise from the operation of aircraft and is exposed at times to aircraft noise which may infringe upon a person's enjoyment of property and may, dependent upon the degree of acoustical treatment of the building, affect their health and/or well being." "Any building constructed on the premise shall be so designed and constructed as to minimize aviation noise pollution in any such structure, giving due consideration to the use for which such structure is designed and built.
This covenant is for the benefit of and pass with said property and shall apply to and bin the successors in interest and any owner thereof."
Zoning Laws
Renton Airport Compatible Land Use Program Report

12/2004
Policy:
Prohibit the location of noise sensitive land uses from areas of high noise levels.

Development Standard:
Limit potentially noise sensitive land uses from locating within the 65 DNL (or higher) noise contour of the Renton Municipal Airport.
Policy:
Residential use and/or residential density may be limited, when deemed necessary to reduce negative impacts on residents from aviation operational noise.

Development Standard:
Residential use or residential density shall be limited based on recommended safety zones and on recommendations in Safety Compatibility Guidelines - Land Use Density and Intensities (California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook, January 2002).
Policy:
Non-residential use and/or intensity may be limited, if such uses are deemed to be noise sensitive, to reduce negative impacts on users from aviation operational noise.

Development Standard:
Non-residential use and/or intensity shall be limited based on recommended safety zones and on recommendations in Safety Compatibility Guidelines - Land Use Density and Intensities (California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook, January 2002).
Real Estate/Property Disclosure Laws
Renton Airport Compatible Land Use Program Report

12/2004
Policy:
Within the Airport Influence Area, require disclosure notice for potential negative impacts from aviation operation noise, unless mitigated by other measures.

Development Standard:
Require disclosure notice be placed on land title when property is subdivided, or as part of approval of conditional use permits, special use permits, building permits, or other SEPA non-exempt projects. Such notice may relate to noise, low overhead flights, aviation operations that create thigh levels of noise, or aviation operations at night when there is greater sensitivity to noise.
