It is with great pleasure that I read of the accomplishments of Queens Quiet Skies and other entities in convincing Governor Andrew Cuomo to advocate for mitigation of the noise and pollution problems of aircraft flying over our communities.
This is just the beginning of the process to mitigate the noise issue involving aircraft flying over our communities. Those involved in this fight must monitor that all of the conditions and requests ordered by the governor are followed through with and appropriate action is taken by the powers that be.
In the meantime, the residents of our area owe a great deal of thanks for the work and effort put forth so far. Janet McEneaney, Bob Whitehair and all of the people involved with Queens Quiet Skies have been extraordinary. Visit their website at queensquietskies.org to see what you can do to aid in their efforts.
On May 3, the Bayside Historical Society will be celebrating its 50th anniversary by hosting a gala at Fort Totten honoring several people who have served our communities well, including McEneaney. You can call (718) 352-1548 or visit baysidehistorical.org for more information.
