There has been a recent change in airplane traffic patterns which has caused increased noise levels for the residents of River Vale and the Pascack Valley. This has been an issue for the entire region for some time. The Township is working with our neighboring towns to lobby the FAA to reroute the traffic pattern to lessen the noise impact. The FAA uses the route over our area when Teterboro Airport is faced with increased landing traffic. The Township has passed a resolution in support of rerouting air traffic and has delivered it to the FAA along with other towns' resolutions. For additional information, please review the recent Teterboro Airport Briefing by the Port Authority of NY/NJ to Bergen County elected officials from February, 2022.
If you have concerns about the increased noise and air traffic over River Vale, we encourage you to log a complaint with the Port Authority of NY & NJ by calling 201-288-8828 or online here. To log a complaint with Teterboro Airport, please call 201-393-0399. Thank you.
