FAA Changes Increase Eastbluff Noise
In March 2017, the FAA implemented a new program, “SoCal Metroplex” that changed the John Wayne Airport (JWA) departure path to allow planes to begin left-hand turns shortly after leaving the runway, putting them squarely over the east side of the Upper Newport Bay. This substantially increased takeoff noise over Eastbluff’s homes, schools, and facilities.
In its environmental assessment of SoCal Metroplex, the FAA stated that the changes would cause “no significant impacts” to surrounding areas. The FAA justifies this change by saying this saves the airlines money on fuel. The City of Newport Beach has filed a legal challenge to the FAA's finding, and is negotiating with the FAA to develop a departure path that would keep planes over the water, not our homes.
The Board of Directors has sent a letter to the City indicating our displeasure with these changes which directed the airlines to turn left (east) sooner. The takeoff noise has increased to a debilitating level and resulted in more jet fuel pollution over Eastbluff and a negative impact to our residents’ health, safety and peace of mind. We believe the fair and safest approach for all of Newport Beach is for the airlines to take off straight out for a longer distance over the middle of the Back Bay as they did prior to March, 2017.
Members are encouraged to write to the City with support of the City's legal action to show the change has had a substantial negative impact on our homes and to support changing the takeoff path back to middle of the Back Bay.

The August 2017 Recirculated Draft EIR was distributed on August 11 by the Newport Mesa Unified School District. The review period is 45 days and public comments are due by 5:00 pm on September 25, 2017.
The HOA Board and their legal and EIR consultants will review the revised EIR document and prepare a letter to the School Board expressing our concerns about impacts of the lights, PA system, traffic and noise on our homes. The School Board is considering approval of Option B that includes TWO fields with FOUR 70-80' light poles on each field. Please SUPPORT ALTERNATIVE #3: NEW TRACK with 2 ARTIFICIAL TURF FIELDS, NO LIGHTS.
Eastbluff residents are URGED to attend these meetings and/or write a letter in response to the proposed project! These options will seriously impact our homes with light glare, loud PA announcements, increased traffic and parking.
The School District will conduct a public hearing on the draft EIR on Tuesday October 24, 2017 at the School District offices.

Many Eastbluff residents are members of the Newport Beach Tennis Club on Eastbluff Drive for tennis, swim or social events. The Newport Beach Tennis Club (and swim facility) occupies 7.6 acres at 2601 Eastbluff Drive, adjacent to Ralphs in the Eastbluff Village Center.
We have heard rumors that the land owner (not the Joyce family that leases the land & operated the Club) has been approached by a developer interested in purchasing the property and turning it into residential condominiums. The rumored development is inconsistent with the property’s existing General Plan designation for Parks and Recreation use. The current owner or potential buyer would therefore need to make a request to change that designation, and the City has no obligation to comply. To date (July 25, 2017) no formal application for land use change has been submitted to the City.
At the April 11 City Council meeting, Mayor Kevin Muldoon (also the District #4 representative) presented the Tennis Club a proclamation for its service to the community.
Established in 1966, the Newport Beach Tennis Club has since continued to be one of the most prestigious tennis clubs in the country. Over the years NBTC has hosted numerous professional events including the Davis Cup, and tennis legends including the likes of Rod Laver and Eastbluff resident Roy Emerson have called NBTC home.
Express your opinion: City Manager Dave Kiff
Proposed new Architectural Standards have been produced by the Board of Directors and Architectural Committee, with participation by a Members Advisory Committee. The goal is to balance the interests of the Association while not unduly intruding on the desire of individual Owners to improve their property and to act as a tool to assist Homeowners and design professionals in creating design solutions unique to their specific Lot, while perpetuating and honoring the best of the existing design philosophy and context of Eastbluff.
Directors Ron Rubino, JJ Abraham, Property Manager Scott Smith, Architectural Consultant Jeff Smith and Legal Adviser Katie Janics will present the draft report to the Board and Members at four workshops for review and discussion. The proposed guidelines will then be mailed to members for a 30-day written comment period. . All members are encouraged to participate in this important project.
For more information contact Ron Rubino at firstname.lastname@example.org
