I am sorry. I posted in response to Mr. Whiting. The solution to noise, the air traffic danger from more "touch and goes", more larger aircraft, the ever present noise of low flying helos and planes in the pattern at low altitude is probably some where between what Titan76 and what Mr. Whiting are saying. I have lived within the footprint of the airport for a long time and have watched and listened to the changes. Developement for the city is a good thing, but there are many neighborhoods and schools that will remain down range when the runways are expanded and the airport becomes more commercial. Mr. Whiting has NO compassion for the residence. "Self serving" is appropriate here. The city has given huge tax break insentives to build and corporate/political fund raising will turn a blind eye to the residence true quality of life. Do not be complaisant !Mar 12, 2012
Titan76, you have a sharp tough. Ignorant victim is a little strong. Don't kid yourself. I get the feeling you have not been a resident of Chandler all that long, or you have a vested interest in that runway. The lengthening of the runways has been voted down three times I believe. I hope the residence of Chandler and those within the confines of the developement district understand that a city developement team will eliminate the need for another vote on a runway expansion. Complaisant residence in the Sun Lakes community need to pay attention. The runway length is intended to to limit bigger aircraft. A 16 passenger aircraft is a lot of airplane. The Mayor just asked if there were "any questions". Mar 11, 2012
