Call to Action- please attend!!
RDU Airport Authority Board meeting:
Thursday, October 20, 2016 | noon
Airport Authority Admin Office, Room 100
1000 Trade Drive, RDU Airport
(across from Rental Car facility)
noon- committee meetings (where the 'real' stuff may happen)
1pm - Full Airport Authority Board
Note: public does not have any opportunities to speak during these meetings, BUT having lots of folks in the room dressed in green wearing sticker will send a LOUD and clear message.
At the Committee meeting and Full Board, the Authority is being asked to move forward the same proposed aviation and non-aviation land use plans as presented at last week's public workshop.
The GOOD: no new runway closer to William B. Umstead State Park
The GOOD: "recreation" has been added to a couple of the non-aviation land use area
The BAD: The only land uses presented on the land between Old Reedy Creek Road and William B. Umstead State Park is "Quarry/Industrial."
NO real vetting of the 1000+ comments asking for the RDU Forest Trail Center Concept to be evaluated or included.
We are asking that the AA Board NOT approve the plan with just the "Quarry/Industrial" option and that our true community vision be fully evaluated.
Your attendance will help send this message!
