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!
