North Port to discuss helicopter complaints

  • 4

NORTH PORT, Fla. - Noise complaints in the city of North Port have been lodged against a medical helicopter company, and that will be a topic of discussion for city commissioners Monday.

Since the beginning of the year, nearly three dozen complaints have been made by residents living near City Hall, where a landing pad is currently set up.

North Port and Bayflite currently have a two year agreement, with the city serving as landlord to the helicopter service.

About 1,800 homes are affected by the noise.

Commissioners will discuss possibly moving the landing pad to another location.
