The Town Council voted last week to join a regional committee advising Logan Airport officials on noise pollution after residents complained about a recent spike in airplane noise. Watertown officials will be accepting applications for appointees to the Logan Airport Community Advisory Committee, which has representatives from about 30 Greater Boston cities and towns. Watertown and Belmont are among several area communities that have registered complaints from residents after Logan changed some flight paths to increase efficiency, leading to a steady procession of low-flying planes over neighborhoods, officials said. Watertown’s vote to join the regional committee comes after the Town Council’s Committee on State, Federal and Regional Government held a meeting Dec. 2 to brainstorm ways to call attention to the issue. The council will send letters about the noisy plane traffic to state and federal legislators representing Watertown, asking them to continue researching the issue and advise local officials on how to proceed with their cause. Councilors also voted Monday to ask the town’s Health Department for research on how the noise affects the local quality of life. They also decided to seek a meeting with Federal Aviation Administration officials to discuss the airplane noise. For more information, visit www.watertown-ma.gov.
