Aviation Policy Committee - Description

This committee is now defunct.  The information presented on this site is for historical puposes.

The Aviation Policy Committee was formed in 1985 by the COG Board of Directors after the 1983-84 "Scatter Plan" demonstration. The area's elected officials recognized the need to identify a new mechanism to address continuing noise mitigation strategies. The "Scatter Plan" demonstration of the dispersal of aircraft noise was extremely controversial and the Board of Directors concluded that a regional approach that examines meaningful noise abatement strategies for the Metropolitan Washington area was needed.
