  FAA Will Hold PHL EIS Airport Expansion Meetings In October
I don't know about you, but I am all "EIS'd" out. Seems like the FAA has been coming around every 6 months talking about jets, DNL, and flight paths. Sometimes one may even forget what these meetings are even about or how they relate. You may ask is this meeting about the 17-35 extension or the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign or the Capacity Enhancement Program (CEP)? This is the problem as each project is being evalutated in isolation.

Chester, PA. Voted "Toxic Town, USA" by George Magazine 1998
Notice the dual arrival tracks from an expanded PHL over Chester, PA. Voted "Toxic Town, USA" by George Magazine 1998

The FAA has approved or is currently permiting following "piecemeal" capacity increases at PHL :

1) implementation of the Dual Modena departure patterns in October 2003;

2) extension of the smaller runway 17/35;

3) expansion of the airspace through the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign, which is an integral component of an airport expansion; and

4) addition of a parallel runway through the CEP.

The FAA continues to "piecemeal" the expansion in the skies and on the ground and fails to accurately render and display the cumulatitive impact from all these projects as a whole on the surrounding communities in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Please attend a meeting and ask your elected officials what is their opinion of the current "piecemeal" permitting process and then ask them to define cumulative impact before you go to poles on Nov. 7th.
