FAA MEETING FEB. 2—AIRPLANE FLIGHT ROUTES
The FAA is hosting 10 public information workshops for the Southern California Metroplex project, and the meeting regarding McCLellan- Palomar Airport will be held on February 2, 5-8 p.m., at Solana Vista Elementary School, 780 Santa Victoria, Solana Beach.
The FAA signed a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Record of Decision (ROD) for the Southern California Metroplex project on August 31, 2016. This is the FAA’s final decision, and it enables the agency to move forward with implementing the project, which will replace dozens of existing conventional air traffic control procedures with new satellite-based proce-dures. The project encompasses most of Southern California and includes six major airports and 15 sat-ellite airports. The FAA undertook the project to im-prove airspace safety and efficiency by allowing for more optimized and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Southern California.
Here is a link to information on the times and dates of the meetings: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/communityengagement/socal/
NOTE: The “more efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Southern California” is exactly what has been responsible for the many complaints of South Vista residents about the low-flying, noisy airplanes over our neighborhoods.
WHAT ABOUT THAT INTERMINABLE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT?
This construction project, on the east side of So. Melrose between Cannon and Sunset, has been going on for forever, it seems.
According to Jeff Hunt, Oceanside City Planner, the project was first permitted in 2014. The zoning is commercial. Mr. Hunt says, “Oceanside staff has told me it appears the slow progress appears to be due to the applicant/consultant, and is out of our hands.”
WELCOME, CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS
