Livermore Municipal Airport (LVK) Information

Collaborative efforts 

The collaboration between both cities was established by resolution in 2010 with the purpose of minimizing airport impacts on the Tri-Valley community and to improve sharing of information between the cities and their residents. The City of Pleasanton has no authority or purview over the LVK, its operations and future development. The City of Livermore Airport Commission and City Council are the decision makers and must comply with Federal Aviation Administration regulations.

The resolutions approving joint cooperative efforts by both cities regarding LVK identified six items which were agreed upon as follows: 


1. Coordinating lobbying efforts by the Tri – Valley city councils to have Federal legislation adopted to phase – out old, high noise – producing jets.

2. Establishing jointly a community forum of stakeholders, to meet twice a year to receive updates regarding the airport manager’s responses to noise complaints; information provided to pilots regarding voluntary noise reduction efforts; and noise monitoring reports, when such reports are prepared.

3. Considering implementation of technology to track planes which generate high noise during take - off and landing and having the airport manager seek to obtain voluntary cooperation from pilots to reduce noise from such planes, and other voluntary mitigation measures for noise reduction.

4. Sharing information about airport noise reduction efforts and fly-over noise sources that can be incorporated into educational materials to be provided to residents.

5. Coordinating future noise monitoring studies.

6.  Resuming quarterly meetings of the Livermore/Pleasanton Liaison Committee to improve communications and to promote mutual understanding of airport operations. 


As part of the collaborative efforts, the City of Livermore – City of Pleasanton City Council Liaison Committee meets quarterly with a standing item on the agenda to provide an update on the LVK.

The next meeting of the Committee is scheduled for June 27, 2023, and will be hosted by the City of Livermore.

Advocacy efforts

The City of Pleasanton is continuously advocating on behalf of its residents regarding the LVK. The City appreciates the feedback by its residents regarding impacts the LVK has on them and the community and encourages residents to engage regularly with the Airport Management, Airport Commission and City of Livermore City Council to express their concerns and seek solutions.
