The town of West Tisbury is seeking a volunteer to serve on a committee studying noise from the Martha’s Vineyard Airport.

The overall goal of the committee, wrote airport manager Geoff Freeman, is “to assess if there are impacts of noise that meet Federal regulations and how we can work with FAA if deemed so to adjust flight patterns...This is a good education tool for all to understand aviation and what level different entities have on controlling it.”

At the town select board meeting last week, board members said they would look favorable on applicants who live in the airport’s flight path or are otherwise affected. The committee will meet three times over the course of the year, in addition to two public sessions.

Interested parties should submit a letter of interest by Jan. 23 at
