Writer says Port of Portland non-responsive to Hillsboro residents when it comes to noise, exhaust pollution

Planes leave 'irritating' noise, exhaust behind

You know how irritating it is when a neighbor or passerby lets his/her dog poop in your yard?

Well, it's very similar to those helicopters and small planes flying at low altitudes over my home.

They leave a great amount of irritating and unnecessary noise, breaking the peace and quiet of my little homestead. And they leave their mess behind without any concern for those below whom they have offended — not just with their noise, but also with their leaded fuel exhaust.

I doubt Senator [Chuck] Riley's proposal will gain support, but I certainly support it. Port of Portland is absolutely non-responsive to Hillsboro residents.
