Developers Spend Money Against Santa Monica Measure D

Wednesday, 01 October 2014 15:29

SMO1Developers and their City Hall allies have been after the 227 acres of Santa Monica airport land for years. Campaign disclosure reports filed recently by Measure LC proponents — the politicians' effort to confuse the voters — prove it.
Big money has started to roll in; $10,000 from Jeff Worthe — president of Worthe Real Estate Group — is the biggest yet, about half of what's been reported.

Sacramento Int'l Airport considering solar array

Sac Intl SMFIt costs a lot of money to keep the lights on at Sacramento International Airport. The airport's electric bill is more than $250,000 per month and nearly $3.5 million each year. Sacramento County officials would like to see that number drop, and they think building a solar array site could help.

Currently, Sacramento County is seeking proposals to develop the site, and that includes looking for a developer or development team to design and operate the system. According to News10's partners at the Sacramento Business Journal, there are two potential sites for the array on the north and east side of the airport property.

FAA Hangar Policy Remains Open For Comment

Interested Parties Have Until October 6th To Make Their Thoughts Known

The public comment period on the FAA's proposed hangar-use policy remains open until October 6, and EAA is encouraging its members to add their comments to the nearly 2,000 that have been sent to the agency thus far.

"EAA has put together a very comprehensive position incorporating ideas from the full breadth of EAA membership for not only protecting the active assembly of aircraft at airports that receive FAA grant funding, but also restoration and maintenance of airplanes," EAA Chairman Jack J. Pelton said in a video regarding the hangar-use policy. (Watch below) "We think these encompass all the EAA activities that should be protected in airport hangars, along with the use of hangars for such aviation organizations as our EAA chapters that use facilities at an airport to support aviation."

Stockton airport to expand airline capacity

Stockton AirportSTOCKTON - With a $1.4 million federal grant in hand, Stockton Metropolitan Airport should start construction this month on a new aircraft parking apron next to the passenger terminal, allowing it to handle multiple airline flights at once, officials said.

Asphalt paving near the airport's passenger gates may soften in summer's heat and cannot bear the weight of large commercial jets. Existing small concrete pads allow the apron to accommodate only one airliner at a time.

The San Joaquin County-operated airport plans to replace the existing apron entirely with stronger concrete, but it designed the project to be built in three separate phases depending on available funds, officials said.
