"Federal Funding for Airpot Rehab Project Still and Issue


"The commission is seeking a waiver from FAA side slpoe regulations
that require a certain amount of open space between the runway and
natural or manmade objects near it that can affect lift-off and
landing approaches.
In the case of the Island airport,that would involve a large section
of trees between the airport and Annex Road. The State Park owns more
than 80% of land on the Island,and has been committed to preserving
and protecting its forests said Mr. Porter.
Without that waiver ,it would drastically change the landscape in that
area, said Mr. Porter, who added that he is confident the waiver will
be renewed,just as it has many times in the past."

Right now the township has given permission for the Bobolonians to cut firewood on the North side of the airport. That is nice for the wood burners, but removes a little more nature.
