About the Neighbors Committee

The BWI Neighbors Committee serves as a liaison between Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and the surrounding communities to ensure continuing and timely discussion of mutual airport and community interests. Such interests include, but are not limited to: (1) ground (highway) access, (2) long-range plans, (3) operational changes, (4) noise, (5) parking and (6) land use. This committee serves as a forum for exchanging information, ideas and suggestions.

Due to the continuing nature of the dialogue between community associations and the Maryland Aviation Administration (MAA), committee participation is limited to one official representative of each community association, plus representatives of the local air traffic control tower of the Federal Aviation Administration and the MAA. While others may attend the meetings of the Neighbors Committee as observers, they do not participate in discussions.

    – Arundel Hills

    – Ferndale
