Logan Airport Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
Logan Airport Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
The CAC represents those communities which have authorized representatives and which are, or may be affected by Airport-related aircraft noise. The primary roles of the CAC's involvement during this study are to: (1) provide the FAA and Massport with input on aircraft noise issues related to the Airport, particularly as it relates to the identification of potential noise abatement measures, (2) provide input on suggested criteria to be used in evaluating and comparing those measures, and (3) recommend to Massport those measures that might be recommended to the FAA for implementation.

Currently, the CAC represents over 30 communities, cities, and towns within the Greater Boston area. CAC worked jointly with FAA and Massport to develop the scope of work for the noise study, and will identify and evaluate potential runway use measures to be in included in a runway use program to replace the Preferential Runway Advisory System (PRAS) that the CAC voted to abandon in April 2012 because it had failed to achieve the intended noise abatement. CAC also manages and directs efforts conducted by the Independent Consultant, who was selected to provide technical assistance and education for the CAC.
