Addressing the complaints of some neighbors regarding noise, Straus said a sound study was recently published and the authors said that some sound walls might be beneficial. Straus said, “You’re talking about $.5 million to $1.2 million that looks like it might have a positive impact on a handful of people.”

He said no part of the operation produces noise louder than an operating airport, which is what the property was formerly used for. Still, he said, “We will adhere to whatever conditions the planning board gives us.”
