Hopefully we can all agree that we're concerned about our kids' health, whether they are rich or poor, hippie or patriot, black or white. Our research committee has done some digging into the details of noise and its effect on children.
For those who "love jet noise" or "love the sound of freedom", you are welcome to your opinions. The noise generated by the F-35s will effect us all in the 65DNL and the surrounding communities. These are PUBLIC HEALTH issues. For those who say "Aw shucks, it's just some loud noise for 6 minutes a day," we invite you to do the research. Very few of us are experts on these matters, but expert research has been done. Please see the pdf attached for some of the facts. We cite the original sources and welcome you to dig further into this topic.
As boards of health in Burlington and beyond study this topic, there is no room for the "Aw shucks" argument.
