    The noise created by the Fed. Ex and other small planes goes well beyond urban growth and noise associated with city life. I moved here a couple of years ago and purchased a home. I now wish I had not. The swarming, buzzing, thundering noise that I have to listen to from the very early morning hours to very late at night is very depressing. The noise and air pollution in this neighborhood does not reflect a “green” and progressive attitude. Why is there no outrage and petition to get the plane traffic and flight patterns adjusted? The impact to the quality of life here in Concordia and the future value of our homes is in jeopardy.

    I fully agree with Iris Blavin. We, too, find the noise, overwhelming, and yes, depressing as all get out. My one question unanswered to our satisfaction? Why do the planes and FAA have most of the say in flight paths? They don’t live here.
    I suppose an associated unanswered question is why is it sometimes fairly quiet here and thunderous other times, when the weather is largely unchanged. We suspect it is left up to the air traffic controllers, whom we bet don’t live here.
