"I have been told that the two potentially-major impacts, the noise and air pollution, will not have a negative impact on Haverford Township," said state Rep. Greg Vitali, D-166. "I have no reason to doubt that what they are saying is true. I am sure they have no interest in building unnecessary runways."

Greg,

People in your area feel very differently and I would be more than happy to forward you the emails to prove it. If you think the formation of a state authority to manage PHL is going to answer your prayers --don't count on it. The reality is if PHL is run out of Harrisburg it will become even more powerful. The authority will have condemnation rights and Interboro Schools will lose because the authority would be tax exempt. Delco will have maybe one or two seats on the state board and it will create more layers of government bureaucracy and waste. Then when the larger 17-35 jets start zooming in over your head those runway landing fees will be diverted to pay for the bailout @ Pittsburgh's airport.


Homer Simpson.

Let them build the runway and waste the 40 million. To reduce PHL air traffic NJ, PA, DE residents and local government officials can start by making your congressional delegates reduce the weight limit of aircraft that can land and take off on PHL 17-35. It's not really up to the FAA like the PHL spokesman stated this week.

Southwest 737 on PHL 17/35


FAA meets Paulsboro residents
Longer Phila. runway could worsen air traffic

Southwest Airlines, which flies mainly 737s to the Philadelphia hub, already uses Runway 17-35 for those flights and that could increase, Peters said. About 150 residents and officials attended Tuesday's meeting, a presentation of preliminary findings in the FAA's nearly yearlong study into the viability of extending the runway. "It's the whole concept (of increased traffic)," Fish said. "It's not just the noise but the pollution and the safety." ..the flight path of planes from 17-35... the jets already taking off and landing on the airstrip seem so close she can practically touch them. "They're Southwest," she said. "That's how low they are, that you can read it."

Attorney: Runway expansion is done deal

"I have been told that the two potentially-major impacts, the noise and air pollution, will not have a negative impact on Haverford Township," said state Rep. Greg Vitali, D-166. "I have no reason to doubt that what they are saying is true. I am sure they have no interest in building unnecessary runways." While residents in Tinicum Township have railed for decades against the increase in air traffic above their homes, the proposed extension of runway 17-35 has prompted concerns from homeowners in New Jersey, Southwest Philadelphia and other parts of Delaware County that could find themselves under a busier flight path.

Getting to the Airport
Because the improvement of Newark has been accompanied by decline at JFK and La Guardia, many have accused the Port Authority - which manages all three airports - of playing favorites. Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was so convinced that the Port Authority's approach was harmful to the city that he tried to seize control of JFK and La Guardia.The Port Authority - which recently renewed its lease of JFK and La Guardia under terms that will give the city much more in rent - responds to accusations of favoritism by saying it spends its funds where they are needed most. In recent years, the agency has shifted capital investment back across the Hudson.

6/21/2004 -- Smells like FAA EIS process...Feds assert control over LNG terminal siting -- Found this news article over the weekend. FERC must be taking lessons from FAA on how to permit controversial projects.--- It makes me wonder why FERC has stakeholder representation as part of the process at all. They came here and told us the public had a say," said Casi Callaway, director of the Mobile Bay Watch environmental group. "I think this is something that every legislator from city council person to federal senator should outright oppose, because if the public doesn't have a say in their own community, what is the purpose of having legislators?"
