In the month of February 2021, the public is invited to participate in an online community workshop on the Noise Exposure Map (NEM) Update the City of Hawthorne is conducting for Hawthorne Municipal Airport.  This will be the third and final public workshop for this planning effort.  Previous in-person public workshops were conducted in November 2019 and February 2020. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the third and final public workshop will be conducted virtually over the course of three weeks by a series of Zoom meetings that will be scheduled for small groups to walk through the presentation boards and ask questions.  Members of the public will need to pre-register online for a timeslot starting seven days prior to the meeting.  All meeting dates will be published on the project website so participants can schedule a time accordingly.
