Why is the expansion needed?
The Airport states "the proposed runway extension ... is being recommended to provide a viable facilty to serve the existing and future users of the Airport." The implication is that the expansion is necessary to serve the growing demand for the airport.
Unfortunately, the projected future growth that a new runway and hangars will address is for
corporate traffic. An expanded airport will not provide an educational benefit to students. Also,
an extended runway will enable the larger and noisier transcontinental jets, heavy-laden with fuel
to take off.
