 Carlsbad’s Citizens for a Friendly Airport presented their concerns about the proposed expansion of Palomar Airport, as well as their hope for a citizen vote on the proposal, to a packed meeting room at South Vista Community’s November 8 community meeting. We in South Vista share their concerns, as many residents are impacted by the loud, low-flying planes headed for the airport. The group has scheduled a meeting with Carlsbad City Council and San Diego County representatives. In the meantime, this is the calendar for the McClellan-Palomar Airport Master Plan, which includes the expansion:

* December 2017—Draft Environmental Impact Report to be released by the County. There will be a 45-day public comment period for those concerned to review the report and comment regarding concerns and issues not addressed. When released, the draft EIR will be posted on the County website — http://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/dpw/airports/ palomar/

masterplan.html. There will be instructions for submitting responses. Citizens for a Friendly Airport ask that you cc your comments to the Carlsbad City Council as well as to your own city council if you don’t reside in Carlsbad.

* Summer 2018 — McClellan-Palomar Airport Master Plan expected to go to the County Board of Supervisors for approval. Citizens for a Friendly Airport website: www.c4fa.org Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/c4faCarlsbad/
