Jack Adkison City of River Oaks 6/17/2013 I noticed a number of motels in this area ,if this is the intended use for this prop[erty, they need to be aware of needed sound proofing as we move to raise awareness of the aircraft noise in these areas. I have no problem with this.
Dave Gattis City of Benbrook 6/17/2013 As I understand it, most of the eastern portion of the property is in the 70-75 dB zone. This would not be affected by Fort Worth's proposed NAS overlay, since it is outside of the APZ. Although there are pre-existing motels north and south of this site, the JLUS indicates that residential hotels and transient lodgings are not compatible. There are a number of other uses in the E Neighborhood Commercial that are incompatible (e.g. nursing homes) or require substantial noise reduction (e.g. schools, churches, and retail stores.) I'd recommend allowing E-Neighborhood Commercial, but excluding those uses shown as incompatible and requiring noise reduction for the others.
Rachel Wiggins Past CPLO at NAS Fort Worth, JRB 6/24/2013 The addition of a hotel in this noise zone (70+ db DNL) is considered incompatible with base operations and is "strongly discouraged" by the Department of Defense. If this use is constructed, it is strongly encouraged that sound attenuation be included in construction to achieve an indoor sound level not to exceed 45 db DNL. Sound attenuation examples include; the hotel should be constructed with interior entrances and should NOT include through-the-wall a/c units which permit substantial noise leaks directly into each unit/room, and spray-in/foam insulation can offer a more complete sound attenuation solution in exterior walls (when compared to other insulation types). Utilizing the Navy's document "Guidelines for Sound Insulation of Residences Exposed to Aircraft Operations" (available online at:, there are specific recommendations for the minimum STC-ratings for windows in this area, along with roof-ceiling assembly recommendations to maintain an acceptable indoor noise level.
Norman Robbins Lockheed Martin 6/24/2013 The addition of another hotel/motel in this location would not be helpful from an operational perspective without sufficient noise attenuation to preclude future noise complaints. Additionally, all signage associated with any future development in this location should be compliant with aircraft operational needs.
Brett McGuire City of Lake Worth 6/25/2013 I realize that there are several motels/hotels already in the area; however, we should carefully consider the compatibility of a "new" hotel. As other have pointed out, it will be within the noise contours that would be considered "incompatible" for the use, If the project proceeds I would urge that sound attenuation (to the 45db DNL indoors) be included as a condition of approval.
Suzanne Meason City of Lake Worth 6/25/2013 Going along with everyone else, if they are allowed to construct, the sound attenuation should most definitely come into play with the development.
