Sign Up For Morningside's Online Neighborhood

Morningside now has an online neighborhood on Nextdoor.com. Nextdoor is a private social network for neighborhoods. Neighbors can use Nextdoor to post items for sale or to give away, ask for or make recommendations, post notices for events, share information that may be of interest to other neighbors, and more. To help build community and maintain privacy, Nextdoor requires everyone who signs up to use their real name and address (which Nextdoor verifies). To learn more about Nextdoor.com and sign up, go to www.nextdoor.com.

How To File An Aircraft Noise Complaint

The Morningside neighborhood is about one mile away from the nearest aircraft noise monitoring tower. That means that aircraft noise over our neighborhood is not measured and the impact of that noise on neighborhood livability can be overlooked. 

If you are concerned about aircraft noise, it’s easy to file a noise complaint. Go to http://www.macnoise.com/our-neighbors/file-noise-complaint and put in your address, then answer a few simple questions. Your noise complaint will be registered. You can also call 612-726-9411 and leave a voice mail. There is no limit to the number of complaints you can file. 

The data will be helpful as the City of Edina continues to work with MAC representatives on aircraft noise issues and proposed changes to the flight distribution over the city.
