LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-- Louisville residents in Parkway Village are demanding something be done to reduce the excessive noise of planes that fly over their homes.

Several of the residents have signed a petition that asks for funding from a federal soundproofing program.  The federal funding comes from the Quiet Homes Program, but Trish Burke, a spokeperson or the Louisville International Airport, said the neighborhood is outside of the boundary.

The funding comes from the FAA and Burke said airport officials have done all they can to extend the borders.

Virginia Embry lives in Parkway Village and said the passenger planes shake her home when they land at the nearby airport.

“I think we deserve as much quiet and peace as anyone,” she said.
She has gathered more than 40 signatures to persuade Louisville International Airport to reevaluate their noise levels.

Airport officials have said that the boundary lines will likely change after the net noise level study.
