CHICAGO (WLS) -- Residents who live near O'Hare International Airport will voice their concerns about jet noise at a closed meeting scheduled for Monday.

Members of the Fair Allocation in Runways Coalition will meet with city officials. This is the first of three meetings between the coalition and the city.

Problems for residents started about a year and a half ago when that runway expanded service and increased air traffic.

Residents have said the jet noise problem is lowering property values and making it tough to sleep, watch TV or sit in their yards.
