Dear Neighbors, We are writing concerning the comment period for the FAA Metroplex.  The number of planes that will fly directly over our neighborhood will directly effect all of us and our Village.  Your CHN Board is asking you to comment on this matter as soon as possible. Please go here to make any comments:

​​On April 22nd the FAA released its Environmental Assessment report thus starting the 45-day comment period that runs from April 22nd through June 6th.  The report can be accessed through the site http://www.metroplexenvironmental.com/denver_metroplex/denver_introduction.html  under Documents (found at the upper left of the page). Click here for a memo regarding the site and workshop times and locations. It is important we all take action to prevent increased flight patterns over Cherry Hills Village. 

All, The former mayor of Cherry Hills Village, Laura Christman, has been extremely involved on NexGen and wrote the attached memo regarding the FAA conducting public hearings and the potential for concentrated flight patterns over our neighborhoods.  Please read it as it is very informative. Click here to link to Laura Christmans memo.

All, The recent ruling in D.C. makes it ever more imperative that we all make an effort to review the legal notices section in all of the newspapers we get in our area (Denver Post, Denver Business Journal, Villager, etc.).  When FAA posts a notice, let Katy Brown, Laura Christman and me know immediately so that we do not miss the 60 day filing date requirement. Here is a link to the D.C. Article
Also, the noise and number of flights over our homes from both DIA and Centennial has increased dramatically.  There appears little that we can do about it with regard to DIA and small planes from Centennial.  Mayor Christman did request in the July 2018 issue of The Village Crier, that Cherry Hills residents keep track of the time and date that they see private jets fly over our city.  Email that information to her (lchristman@cherryhillsvillage.com)  along with your name and address and she will consolidate the information and send it to Centennial Airport in hopes of changing private jets routes away from our cities.
Please circulate this email to your groups.
Thank you, Diane Reeder 720/300-9800

The March 23rd meeting noted in the Feb 21, 2018 post was cancelled. Linked here is an update drafted by fellow resident, Dianne Reeder, with regard to the FAA’s proposed implementation of Metroplex. PBN, referenced in the attached report given by FAA Acting Administrator, Dan Elwell, is an acronym for Performance Based Navigation. For those of you interested in staying current with this topic we hope you find the attached document informative. Should you have any questions we recommend you contact Diane Reeder directly per her contact information in the document.

In our January email, we referenced information regarding the FAA flight pattern changes and how to participate to help all of Cherry Hills Village fight the proposed increase in flight patterns over our neighborhoods. This is a very important issue that we are told will affect us. The issue is getting more serious and we want to stress the importance of your participation in sending letters to our representatives.  Diana DeGette and the Cherry Hills Village City Council are holding a community meeting about the issue on March 23 from 9:30-10:30 at Community room of 2460 E Quincy (see attached flyer). Please check the city website as the date approaches for any updates www.cherryhillsvillage.com.

In our November HOA email, we referenced information regarding the FAA flight pattern changes and how to participate to help all of Cherry Hills Village fight the proposed increase in flight patterns over our neighborhoods. This is a very important issue that we are told will affect us.

Mayor Laura Christman, of Cherry Hills Village, recently attended a N.O.I.S.E. meeting in Charlotte, NC.  She included many of the insights and concerns she learned at that meeting in the December issue of The Village Crier – Click here to view the article from the Village Crier.

​Dear Neighbors, please see the important information below regarding the potential changes to FAA flight patterns. This could greatly impact the serenity of our neighborhood and potentially impact our property values. After receiving this, many residents complained and received a response from the Denver Noise Office that the information below is not entirely correct. We should watch: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/snapshots/metroplexes/?locationId=8 . for updates. The FAA did not attend the round table meeting below. We expect future updates and will do our best to keep you informed. Link here for an email thread to view communication among concerned residents, our mayor and city council. Some private information has been removed from this thread. 

FAA flight pattern: 
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently held informational workshops to distribute information on the proposed airspace “improvements” for the Denver metro area.  The FAA hopes redesigning the airspace will address inefficiencies that impact several airports in Colorado including DIA and Centennial Airport which cost the airline industry over $1.8 million in fuel annually.  The Denver Metroplex redesign may involve changes in aircraft flight paths and altitudes in certain areas.  The City of Cherry Hills Village is currently in the arrival and departure path for both DIA and Centennial Airport.  These changes could substantially increase flight traffic over the Village, as much as a flight every minute.

The deadline to submit electronic comments to the FAA through their website was June 5, 2017. Mayor Laura Christman and the City Council are collaborating with other Denver Metro Area communities to oppose the implementation of Metroplex Denver until local communities receive adequate information to assess the impact of Metroplex as applicable to their specific community and have the opportunity to submit documentation to the FAA with respect to noise sensitive areas in their communities, consistent with applicable law.

There will be a round table meeting on Wednesday, November 1st at 6:30 p.m. at the Ramada Hotel & Suites located at 7770 South Peoria Street Englewood 80112.

Currently, Cherry Hills Village is experiencing more flights overhead from Denver International Airport due the north runway having been closed for maintenance through at least the end of October.  These additional flights are fewer than what we would experience should the proposed Metroplex redesign be approved but they offer an example of the level of noise that Cherry Hills Village would be subjected to possibly as frequently as once a minute under the plan.

Of most importance, please send your concerns or questions about the proposed flight pattern changes for DIA and Centennial to noise.office@flydenver.com or by calling the noise complaint line at 303-342-2380. For more information on the issue, you may contact our neighbor, Diane Reeder, at 303-753-6799 or rheppe@comcast.net or Katy Brown, our City Council representative, at 303-860-0262 or kbrown@cherryhillsvillage.com
