11-14-2013 Sound Insulation Program Completes 5000th Home

On Thursday, November 14th, the Reno-Tahoe International Airport celebrated the completion of the 5000th home to receive acoustically rated windows and doors to mitigate aircraft noise. The celebration was held at the home located in Sparks, NV.

To date over $67 million has been spent insulating homes within the eligible area with an average design and construction cost per home of $15,000. There is no cost to the homeowner for these updates.

Working with the Federal Aviation Administration since 1994, this highly successful program has brought a higher quality of life to area homeowners located in Reno, Sparks and Washoe County.
