The Committee — composed of 14 voting members — provides a forum for collaborative discussion of airport noise issues and other related matters. Committee members represent the following agencies, industries, or interested groups:

  • Greater Golden Hill Planning Board
  • Little Italy Association
  • Midway Community Plan Advisory Committee
  • Ocean Beach Planning Board
  • Peninsula Community Planning Board
