Welcome to the San Francisco International Airport/Community Roundtable! As Chairperson of this organization, I am pleased to continue its mission to not shift noise and retain our quality of life on the Peninsula and the City of San Francisco. As a group of elected officials, we are dedicated to representing the citizens of San Francisco and San Mateo County on issues related to aircraft operations from San Francisco International Airport. We welcome your attendance at our regular meetings at the Dave Checuti Room in Millbrae.


The Airport/Community Roundtable was established in 1981 as a voluntary committee to address community noise impacts from aircraft operations at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The Roundtable monitors a performance-based noise mitigation program implemented by airport staff, interprets community concerns and attempts to achieve noise mitigation through a cooperative sharing of authority among the aviation industry, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), SFO management and local government.

The authority to control aircraft in flight and on the ground is vested exclusively in the FAA. The FAA, however, cannot control the number of flights nor the time of day of aircraft operations. Federal law preempts any local government agency from implementing any action that is intended to control the routes of aircraft in flight. Neither the Roundtable, local elected officials nor airport management can control the routes of aircraft in flight or on the ground.
