Aircraft Noise Level Warning Signs Around Mississauga

By: Leaftech

If you are searching for a new home within the Mississauga area, you have probably noticed that in several neighbourhoods there are signs warning of aircraft noise. In this article, we will take a look at what these signs mean, why they have been posted, and how they might affect your life in Mississauga.

The signs are due to the fact that Mississauga's increasing size as a city has led developers to begin neighbourhoods closer to one of the busiest airports in the country, the Lester B. Pearson Airport. This travel hub sees dozens of flights departing and arriving every hour, and as we all know, airplanes can generate a colossal amount of noise! Because of this noise, the airport, the city, and developers are required to warn the public in order that they might base their decisions with all possible information available. These signs were posted under the joint direction of both the city of Mississauga and the federal government due to the complaints of citizens regarding the fact they were not prepared for the levels of volume they encountered from the planes.

Of course, aircraft noise at high levels will mean various things to different people. Here are some considerations if you are thinking about purchasing a home in one of these areas:

People with sensitive hearing, particularly families with autistic children, may have their health directly affected by the noise generated by air traffic.

Sleep may be interrupted frequently by the noise of planes passing overhead.

Outdoor activities may be less pleasant, because conversation can be drowned out by the roar of engines and the rush of wind as it rushes back into the vacuum left by the passing plane.

On the other hand, housing in these areas tends to be much more affordable than in other parts of the city. Individuals should also keep in mind that both the city and the airport are constantly looking for ways in which to minimize the noise impact of air traffic on the communities around the airport. Noise mitigation is constantly under way, and there are avenues for registering complaints in the event of excessive noise.
