City of El Segundo Suspends Its Residential Sound Insulation Program. Please see press release issued on August 23, 2016. Press Release
The City’s Residential Sound Insulation (RSI) Program has been terminated.
The City Council elected to end the program at its meeting on July 17, 2018 after the City was notified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) that grant funding provided by those agencies could no longer be used by the City for ongoing expenditures.
The RSI Program, which was established by the City in 1993, treated 1,905 homes for adverse effects of noise from operations at neighboring Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). (An additional 7 homes and 33 apartments were treated by the Los Angeles Department of Airports in the 1980s)
