Airport staff and the consultant team will also be available to listen to citizen comments and answer questions about the Study.
Copies of the recommendations, forecasts, and official Noise Exposure Maps are available on the website (www.anc150study.com) and at the Airport Administrative Offices at 5000 W. International Airport Road, Anchorage, AK.

Each person will have a maximum of 3 minutes to speak publicly after the presentation. Citizens may sign up to speak when signing into the meeting, and this list will be used to call turns for providing testimony, followed by anyone who did not sign up and would like to speak. After everyone wishing to speak publicly has completed their one 3-minute turn, the meeting will break to allow citizens to provide private testimony to the hearing officer. Private testimony will also be conducted in 3-minute turns. Comments may also be submitted in writing at the meeting, or to the e-mail or postal address listed below or on the website listed below.
The official period during which comments on the draft Study will be accepted is from October 10, 2014 to November 24, 2014.
