Has Ohio State University encouraged community input concerning Don Scott Airport's growing noise issue?
No, Ohio State has a long history of ignoring community concerns.
As the mayor of Riverlea, an upscale village just south of Worthington said recently in a letter to
the editor, "Since 1980, Riverlea has been writing letters to Don Scott, Ohio State, the
Federal Aviation Administration and congressional representatives seeking to resolve the loud, low
flying jets constantly lowering their landing gear over Riverlea. We have received no cooperation
from OSU." (The Columbus Dispatch, July 3, 2004)
In September 2004, Worthington City Council enaceted emergency legislation to study the OSU Noise
Study and Environmental Assessment. One of the reasons cited was a lack of cooperation and
communication on the part of OSU.
