NOISE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS AS OF MARCH 31, 2007
 
Noise Assistance Programs
 
The MAA administers a number of programs to assist residents who are exposed to high aircraft noise
levels from BWI. Eligibility for participation in the programs is determined from the Airport Noise Zone
(ANZ), which is update in accordance with the Annotated Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR).
The current ANZ (1998) will be updated in 2007.
 
Voluntary Noise Acquisition Program
 
The MAA began in 1985 to acquire residential properties which were determined to be severely impacted
by aircraft noise. Property owners who volunteer to participate are paid fair market value for their
property, at its highest and best use, and are provided re-location assistance. Properties located in
areas greater than DNL 65 (as determined by the ANZ contours) are eligible for this program, provided
the property has been zoned by local government to transition from a residential to a compatible
land use.
 
Progress as of March 31, 2007
Eligible properties - 343
Properties acquired to date - 250
Properties in-process or on waiting list - 4
Homeowners who have declined participation -45
Homeowners who have not applied 44
Acquisition expenditures to date $40.9 Million
 
Homeowner Assistance Program
 
In 1988 the MAA began to offer financial assistance to those who are located in areas inside the ANZ,
but who are not eligible for the Voluntary Noise Acquisition Program. Voluntary participants in this
program are required by state statute to grant an avigation easement. The easement permits aircraft
operations over the property, provides notification to future owners of high cumulative aircraft noise
levels, and is binding on all future owners.
 
This first option in the program, Resale Assurance, provides financial assistance to homeowners wishing
to move from the ANZ. The selected properties are appraised to determine their value as if they were
located outside the Airport Noise Zone. The second option, Sound-Proofing, assists the homeowner in
making modifications to their home with the goal of reducing interior noise levels to a DNL of 45 dBA.
 
Progress as of March 31, 2007
Eligible properties -902
Properties completed - 764
Sound-Proofed -651
Resale Assurance Program - 113
Properties in process or on waiting list- 13
Sound-Proofed -13
Resale Assurance Program - 0
Homeowners who have not applied -138
Homeowners Assistance expenditures to date $20.0 Million
 
School Sound-Proofing Program
 
The school sound insulation program was completed in 1991 by providing sound insulation at four schools
which were re-furbished to reduce interior noise levels. The total cost of the program was $9.3 million.
 
Relocation of Ridgewood Mobile Home Park
 
In August of 1998 the MAA began the relocation of the residents of the Ridgewood Mobile Home Park. The
Park was located within the DNL 65 contour, as determined by the 1998 Airport Noise Zone. The Park land
was purchased at a price of $6.35 million for 72 + acres. 122 families in the Park at the time of MAA's
purchase; there were a total of 140 mobile homes in the Park. The program was completed in March 2000
at a total cost of $9.7 million.

Note:
(1) The Acquisition Program was initiated in 1985.
(2) The Homeowners Assistance Program was initiated in 1988.
