Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Residential Sound Mitigation Services (RSMS)

From 1999 to 2009, CSDA served as the Program Manager for the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport Residential Sound Mitigation Services (RSMS) Program. The program used Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and airport revenue to soundproof homes impacted by aircraft noise generated by the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and within the DNL 65 or higher noise contour. CSDA provided acoustical treatment for approximately 2,400 single-family homes impacted by aircraft noise.

Services provided included program management, design management, construction administration, community outreach/public relations, homeowner coordination, historical home design, FAA grant coordination and administration, grant funding source identification and grant application preparation, financial and close-out reporting. CSDA was responsible for program oversight, serving as the Owner Representative during each phase of the program.

CSDA also oversaw the development of two web-based applications; one a parcel based program database and the second a document management system where all program documents were accessed and stored. The development of these two tools enhanced reporting capabilities and contributed to a straightforward program close-out process as expenditures for each grant were tracked on a per-parcel basis.

CSDA’s work during the RSMS received a 2009 Honor Award from the Arizona Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards Program and the 2009 Randy Jones Award for Excellence in Airport Noise Mitigation at the 9th Annual AAAE Airport Noise Mitigation Symposium.
