New York Community Aviation Roundtable (NYCAR)
The New York Community Aviation Roundtable (NYCAR) is a voluntary working group comprised of stakeholders affected by John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA) operations. The main purpose of the NYCAR is to establish a meaningful dialogue between the airport community and the residential communities. The primary goal of NYCAR is to work collaboratively with the airport management and Federal Aviation Administration to enhance the quality of life of local community residents while ensuring the airport's continued efficient operation.
The purpose of the New York Community Aviation Roundtable (NYCAR) is to consider community concerns about aviation-related public health and environmental issues; resolve problems through a cooperative sharing of information and authority among members; provide a public forum to air ongoing citizen concerns; create a mechanism to facilitate cooperation and communication among member stakeholders; participate in planning for future procedures and changes in aviation, and explore and recommend creative solutions to mitigate noise and environmental problems over affected communities.
Roundtable members will accomplish these tasks by establishing strategic performance objectives; gathering information and data; collecting, analyzing, reviewing, and reporting performance data; measuring outcomes; assessing whether goals have been accomplished; and collectively implementing other activities considered necessary by the members to further the mission and purpose of the Roundtable.
This working group comprises representatives of stakeholders affected by airport operations in and out of area airports, including community members, appropriate agency representatives, elected and appointed officials, and airport employees.
NYCAR meetings in 2022 remain as Zoom sessions until further notice. They will be held on the fourth Wednesday in January, April, June and October. For instructions on how to participate in a meeting, kindly reach out directly to either of the two airport committees via their links: JFKAirportCommittee@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the meetings typically occur from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, please check back to confirm if there are any revisions/cancellations.
