  What is and what should never be - Comment period ends Nov. 10th , 2008


Dear Friends and Elected Officials,

With all of the attention that has been focused on the recent release of GAO audit of the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign it seems the media has overlooked the fact the FAA plans to hold another round of public meetings to outline the release of a DIES for the Philadelphia Airport Capacity Enhancement Program (PHL-CEP.) The meetings, which will be held four of five nights next week will discuss the DEIS and public hearings for official public comment are scheduled for October. In fact, Tuesday's scheduled meeting for Delaware will be held on primary election night. Which most likely will keep many of Delaware's public officials away and unable to attend. It is also puzzling how the FAA can continue with permitting the CEP since briefs challenging the Airspace Redesign's NEPA process were just filed on the 25th of August.

See snip from PHL-CEP website below:
"The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has revised the schedule for issuance of the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) Capacity Enhancement Program (CEP) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) so that they can update the baseline condition and analysis of potential cumulative impacts to reflect the FAA’s recent decision approving the NY/NJ/PHL Airspace Redesign Project."

So with the upcoming elections to be held in November maybe it is time for the media not to focus on who is the "rock star" candidate or what candidate's child is having a baby. Maybe it is time for all to start asking our elected officials why was the GAO audit delayed until after briefs had to be filed? Why is the permitting for CEP moving forward as the airspace litigation is still pending ? Please attend a public meeting in your area and remember to also submit comments at the public hearings in October.
