Congressman Tim Bishop address Wainscott citizens' concerns

As a year round resident of Wainscott, and one who lives near 27, I think there are several noise issues, the planes being just one. The other more pressing issue for me is the construction noise coming from Wainscott Sand & Gravel. They start their pile driving machine and earth moving machine noise at 6 am or shortly afterwards, even on Saturday mornings. All day it is a constant loud hammering noise and beeping. The town ordinance says they are allowed to start at 7 am, but I believe that should be changed to 8, and a noise impact study needs to be conducted to see how the plant is affecting the lives of all the Wainscott residents."

Helicopter foe girds for battle

I would like something done about the pile driving machine and earth moving machine noise coming from Wainscott Sand & Gravel. The hammering noise and beeping noise starts at 6 am and goes on all day. The helicopters and planes can get very loud, but at least usually that is noise that comes and goes. The noise from the gravel plant goes on continuously and a noise impact study should be conducted on that to see how it is affecting the lives of Wainscott residents." Sep 15, 10 9:08 AM

Concerns Over Airport Noise Spur Lawsuit In East Hampton

The amount of noise from the airport has increased exponentially in the last two years. It does not only affect people living within a one mile radius of the airport, as suggested, but affects a good portion of Long Island. There is little to no regulation of what time planes and helicopters take off and land, going on well into the night and early morning hours. This is not about having a "silver spoon", rather this is a quality of life issue that is affecting many to the benefit of very few. The airport should be used for small local aircraft and emergency aircraft as it was in the past, and not for luxury aircraft that ferry the wealthy back and forth, but if it is to be used for this purpose there should be stricter regulations."

Town Board Member Sees Potential Helicopter Solution On The South Shore

Mr. Stanzione's idea to "share" the noise pollution with the residents who live on the south side of the airport is not a solution to this enormous problem. Why can't the issue be addressed that the convenience for a very few adversely affects a great majority and that this should be banned? The airport noise pollution has increased exponentially in the last two years, and as a resident who lives on the south side of the airport I can attest to the fact that the noise is already unbearable from aircraft and helicopters all hours of the day and night and the idea that they are potentially going to be increasing it is terrifying to me. Forget about conversations in the backyard or afternoon naps or even undisrupted sleep at normal hours. The airport should be used for small local aircraft and emergency aircraft and the hours of operation should be strictly regulated. The people in charge need to stop denying the problem or turning a blind eye to the suffering of the residents of Long Island." Aug 14, 11 1:03 PM

Stanzione Welcomes Airport Debate

I just don't understand what the rush is. Why can't the hearing be postponed until the new town board members are in? Why can't the surplus airport money be used for the deer fence in the meantime? Why can't a study be done of the benefits or lack thereof to noise and traffic reduction with the new trailer (NOT tower) in place before accepting FAA money? Why is all of this being fast-tracked in such a rushed manner? This issue affects thousands of homeowners on Eastern Long Island, not just a few homeowners around the airport. One must think of the future of East Hampton and the other affected towns and of the greater good. By the way, NO ONE is talking about closing the airport! This is just fear and panic mongering rhetoric from the pro-FAA money people." Nov 25, 11 4:42 PM
