Spotlight: Port of Portland
Aviation activities at Portland International Airport and general aviation airports in Hillsboro and Troutdale play significant roles in helping fuel the region's economy by connecting people and goods in this area with those around the globe. However, increased demands on the Port's aviation infrastructure have been borne at the cost of increased air traffic over our communities and the resulting aircraft noise that comes with it.
The Noise Management Department serves as the primary communications link between residents who depend on access to reliable air travel options and the air service providers that use PDX and other Port owned airports.
The job of the Noise Management Department is to listen carefully to the concerns of our community, affect change when possible, and support the aircraft operators and businesses that rely on PDX to conduct business while meeting the needs of the region.
The Port of Portland Noise Management website also provides a closer look at noise program operations through an educational video.
