Subj: Community soliciated for input on use of Airport Curfew Funds
From: (Airport Neighborhood Services Group)

Airport Looks for Community Input

In October 2003, Mineta San José International Airport (SJC), with the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), revised the curfew portion of its noise control program from a weight-based curfew to a noise-based curfew. The revised noise control program also included enforcement provisions where operators are fined $2,500 for every curfew intrusion. To date, the Airport Curfew Fund has collected $202,500.

As a part of SJC’s Good Neighbor Policy, the Airport is inviting the local community to submit their recommendations for the use of these funds. The following criteria should be included within all proposed recommendations. The Airport Curfew Fund Program(s) should:

  • Offer some benefit to the community
  • Be related to operations at the Airport
  • Enhance the interaction of the Airport with the community
  • Enhance the relationship between neighbors and the Airport
(Under Federal Law, the Airport Curfew Funds may be used only for expenditures that are directly and substantially related to the operation of the Airport.)

Ultimately, the Airport Curfew Fund Program(s) should benefit the surrounding communities, enhance Airport/community relations, and support responsiveness on Airport issues of community interest.

To submit your recommendation, please fill out the official “Airport Curfew Fund Program” form. The form, along with submission instructions, can be found on the Airport’s website, Submissions are due May 15, 2006.

Selected proposals that meet the criteria and Federal Law requirements will be presented to the San José Airport Commission for review at their June 5, 2006, meeting and then go before San José City Council for final approval in August 2006. For more information, please call 408-501-0979 or email
