Noise Mitigation Progress
Homes are being sound insulated through the Voluntary Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSI Program). The Noise Mitigation Team is working with groups of property owners in the 65 to 70 Day/Night Noise Level (DNL) noise contour. DNL is the daily average noise level. The homes are bundled into groups for bidding and construction purposes.
To date, 648 homes have been invited to participate with the 430 homes that are in different stages of design. The entire process takes approximately 18 months.
Prior to the start of design, property owners and residents are invited to attend a public presentation. The most recent presentation was held on March 13, 2013. Discussions at the presentation included an explanation of the entire process of the sound insulation program, initial homeowner participation applications, home visits by the design team, homeowner review of the design, and the construction process.
The RSI Program is one aspect of the Noise Mitigation Program that includes the Voluntary Mobile Home Acquisition Program and a Voluntary Sales Assistance Program.

Early Action Voluntary Residential Sound Insulation Pilot Program
Sound Insulation Construction Complete.
Construction to the homes included in the Voluntary Residential Sound Insulation Pilot Program began the first week of June 2011 and continued through September 2011.
As part of the Airport Expansion Program, the Pilot Program involved the installation of sound insulation materials to 48 residential units. The units are located in the City of Dania Beach and are close to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Acoustical improvements for these properties include upgrades to the "noise paths" into a home, particularly windows and doors.
