Airport Noise

Minneapolis, MN: (Oct-16-07) A class action lawsuit that was filed against the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) by Minneapolis, Richfield and Eagan, alleged that more than 9,000 residents suffered the ill effects of noise pollution. As part of a recent settlement reached, following a preliminary $64 million deal, the city of Minneapolis approved a proposed airport noise settlement that will provide affected communities with $127 million in airport noise relief. As part of the deal, the city claimed to provide noise protection, air conditioning and insulation to select homes and to provide cash reimbursement for work done on homes in noisy areas. MAC also agreed to pay $2.25 million to the plaintiffs for reimbursement of attorney's costs. [MERCURY NEWS: AIRPORT NOISE]

At my condominium noise is transmitted into my apartment from the new hydraulic motor and equipment installed elevator major alteration. Building officials stated elevators are functional and the noise issue is a civil issue. Requested to get copies of all documents and inspection reports, I was informed there are no plans, specifications for the elevator alteration. Building Department, Elevator company and manufacturer are not willing to provide copies of engineer approved power unit assembly parts, shop drawings approved for the project.

Best regards
