Consultants hired by the Suburban O'Hare Commission have recommended 20 operational changes at the airport that could reduce noise, and they're now putting the finishing touches on a report that the advocacy group plans to take to the Chicago Department of Aviation, officials said this week.

The commission, composed of 11 governmental entities in Northwest suburban Cook County and northern DuPage County, hired JDA Aviation Technology Solutions and Lockridge Grindal Nauen in February to gather technical data and formulate recommendations on ways to reduce airport noise.


Their draft report recommends different airplane glide slopes and approaches, said Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig Johnson, the commission's chairman.

Once the report is finalized, Johnson plans to meet with Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans in hopes of implementing some of the recommendations.
