proposed RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MENLO PARK REQUESTING ACTION FROM THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION TO REDUCE AIRCRAFT NOISE IN THE CITY OF MENLO PARK

From: domainremoved <Peter>
Date: Fri, 15 Jul 2016 06:20:52 -0700

Dear Council,

The aircraft noise problem requires a comprehensive rather than a piecemeal solution.

As worded items 3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9 are not in Menlo Park’s best interest.

I urge the Council to eliminate these items and instead the resolution should call for the adoption of the following SFO approach procedure:

*************
1 - All SFO inbound traffic from the North and the East must use the RNAV (GPS) X RWY 28R approach and must enter that approach at the ANETE Initial Approach Fix (IAF) for which the minimum crossing altitude is 7000 ft

Alternatively these aircraft could us the ILS or LOC RWY 28R approach and must enter at ARCHI IAF for which the minimum crossing altitude is 7000 ft,

2 - All SFO inbound traffic from the South and the West must use the RNAV (GPS) X RWY 28L approach and must enter that approach at the Faith IAF which has a minimum crossing altitude of 7000 ft.

Entry to this approach via MENLO intersection would not be permitted.

Alternatively these aircraft could us the ILS or LOC RWY 28L approach and must enter at the FAITH IAF for which the minimum crossing altitude is 7000 ft

Entry to this approach via MENLO intersection would not be permitted.

3 - SFO and SJC must be landing in the same direction unless the wind differential between them is greater than 1o knots.

This proposal uses existing and established waypoints and procedures and does not impinge on the SJC airspace.

Here is a graphic depicting the proposed approach:



Thank you for your consideration.
