POLITICAL ASPECTS OF LOCAL NOISE CONTROL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

This paper points out that although developing a noise control program is a complex political process, the conflicts generally reduce to a question of perceived costs and who pays them, against perceived benefits and who receives them. It is concluded that in the political process of convincing the local decision makers and the major noise producers that the proposed costs are reasonable and prudent to incur, the main emphasis should be upon the present adverse human impact and the multiple benefits to be derived by a noise control program.
