Overview

The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) seeks to cooperate with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to adjust the frequency and noise of flights from 10pm to 6am that adversely impact our community. Commission members attend meetings with State and Federal aviation officials and advise the Village President and Board of Trustees about any airport news, policies or developments that may affect our village.

Other Duties

The ONCC also works with the Chicago Department of Aviation to solve noise related problems between the city and the surrounding suburbs. The ONCC includes membership from 56 towns, 19 school boards and three counties.

Findings and reports are presented at regularly scheduled Village Board meetings on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
