The City of El Segundo has established its Residential Sound Insulation (RSI) Program to offer owners of residential property most impacted by air traffic from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) improvements to reduce noise within the home. These improvements, such as new windows, exterior doors, and attic insulation, are intended to help prevent exterior noise from interrupting such activities as sleep, conversations, and watching television.
Participation in the Residential Sound Insulation Program is voluntary, and is offered at no cost to the property owner. Only residential property located within the 65 deciBel (dB-A) Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) contour, shown on the attached map, and built before 1998 is eligible for the program. Properties are selected for groups based on the date a completed appplication is received (including copy of the Property Deed) and Zone in which the property is located.
The City will make the final decision regarding address selection for each group, and reserves the right to deny participation to properties exhibiting Municipal code violations.
