Given its proximity to Logan Airport and downtown Boston, Cambridge has long experienced noise from aviation, including airplanes and helicopters. With new technologies and federal policies, patterns of noise have shifted in recent years in Cambridge with some people experiencing additional noise, and others less.
To advocate for residents with Massport and FAA on these issues, the City is actively represented on the Massport Community Advisory Committee (MCAC) which meets regularly. Meetings are open to the public. See the link below for more information about on-going work of the MCAC and meeting dates.
