Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) Part 150 Airport Noise Compatibility Planning Study
The City of Plantation is participating in Broward County Aviation Department’s (BCAD’s) Part 150 Study Process for the airport by being members on the Study’s Technical Committee (TC) and Study Coordination Committee (SCC). City of Plantation Administration will be assisting in distributing information related to the study to City residents throughout the Part 150 Study process.
The Part 150 Study is a formal evaluation process that will include a review of the airport’s operations (aircraft type, frequency, time of day, arrival/departure routes), as prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Recommendations from this study will be submitted to the FAA for consideration and approval. All local residents are encouraged to participate in this study through the various public meetings/workshops that will be conducted. We invite you to provide any information or issues you may have with airport noise by contacting the City of Plantation at 954-797-2723.

Mosquito Bite Protection in Florida
Mosquitoes are annoying and can carry serious diseases such as encephalitis (West Nile, St. Louis and Eastern Equine), yellow fever, dengue and malaria. Be a good neighbor and help control mosquitoes. If there are any places around your home where water collects, you may be raising mosquitoes!
Mosquito Bite Protection in Florida (flyer)
There are different types of mosquitoes in Broward County. Two types of them (Aedes Aegypti and Aedes albopictus) carry the Zika virus, which is an “urban” mosquito. They like to breed in smaller bodies of water such as tires, planters, pet bowls, children’s toys, buckets and bottle caps.
Residents and business owners are the first line of defense when it comes to reducing mosquito breeding sites. Everyone should take the time to survey their property and empty and remove all containers that hold standing water. The females like to lay their eggs in artificial containers like those mentioned. It’s very rare that an abandoned pool will become a mosquito breeding site, and rarer still that it would breed the type of mosquito that carries the Zika virus.
Residents don’t need to be concerned about lakes, canals, roadside ditches or retention ponds either. The Aedes Aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquito does not breed in those bodies of water.
For more information, see flyer: Breaking the Zika Virus Cycle.
Mosquito spraying for any reason (both nuisance and health-related reasons) is also a County service. You may get more information and an online mosquito spray request form.
