Aurora, Colo. – (April 23, 2014) City Council Member Brad Pierce was elected president of the National Organization to Insure a Sound-Controlled Environment (N.O.I.S.E) during its annual Legislative Summit held each year in conjunction with the National League of Cities (NLC) Congressional City Conference. Pierce has served on the N.O.I.S.E Executive Committee as vice president for several years. Aurora has been a member of N.O.I.S.E. for more than 30 years.
Due to the city’s proximity to commercial airports, Aurora continues to face issues related to airport noise. Throughout his 11 years of service in public office, Pierce has advocated for cost-effective and environmentally-sound regulations to limit the effects of aircraft noise. For his efforts, Pierce was awarded the Environmental Stewardship Award by N.O.I.S.E. Representing Aurora, Pierce has served as a member of the Centennial Airport Community Noise Roundtable since its founding in 2009.
