I have two items for fellow neighbors of the Elizabeth Community, both concerning noise.
First, I noticed in the paper last week in the Dr. Traffic column that the state has approved "quiet horns" for trains. They can be used at road crossings that have new four arm guards so that there is not an opportunity for cars to drive around the crossing arms. The arms cost $100,000 per crossing. Does anyone else know anything about this or know how we can approach the city about getting this completed at Pecan and at Central? I think reduction of the train horns at night would greatly improve our quality of life (and sleep).
Second, has anyone else noticed a recent increase in the proximity and volume of helicopters in our neighborhood? Is there anything that can be done about it.
