S4 Noise Hazards

Only areas with a white background are considered part of the General Plan.

This is a view from Mission Boulevard of several of the major noise generator.

Physical health, psychological well being, social cohesion, property values and economic productivity can all be affected by excessive amounts of noise.  Ontario has many mobile and stationary sources of noise, impacts from them must be considered in development decisions.



An environment where noise does not adversely affect the public’s health, safety, and welfare.



Noise Mitigation.  We utilize the City’s Noise Ordinance, building codes and subdivision and development codes to mitigate noise impacts.


Coordination with Transportation Authorities.  We collaborate with airport owners, FAA, Caltrans, SANBAG, SCAG, neighboring jurisdictions, and other transportation providers in the preparation and maintenance of, and updates to transportation-related plans to minimize noise impacts and provide appropriate mitigation measures.


Airport Noise Mitigation.  We aggressively pursue funding and utilize programs to reduce effects of aircraft noise in impacted areas of our community. (Link to Land Use Element and Quiet Home Program)


Truck Traffic.  We manage truck traffic to minimize noise impacts on sensitive land uses.  (Link to Mobility Element)


Roadway Design.  We design streets and highways to minimize noise impacts.


Airport Noise Compatibility.  We utilize information from Airport Land Use Compatibility Plans to prevent the construction of new noise sensitive land uses within airport noise impact zones.
