Airport authority votes for curfew study
By Tom Risen

Burbank Airport TerminalBURBANK — The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Commission voted unanimously Monday in favor of a study it will use to support Bob Hope Airport’s application for a curfew on nighttime flights. After eight years and $6 million spent on the Part 161 study, the approval by the nine-member commission was the final step in completing the first study of its kind since the process was legalized by Congress in 1991. The Federal Aviation Administration will now have one month to accept the study and six months to make a ruling on it, said Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill. (Editor’s Note: It is outrageous in a time when the state and the cities in our state are suffering from chronic budget issues that this waste of money would be forced on the public.)

Oroville – City Attempts Selling Airport Property – Sites Economic Downturn

Land sales at airport considered

By MARY WESTON – Staff Writer

OROVILLE — The Oroville Redevelopment Agency Commission will consider a staff proposal to sell industrial land at the Oroville Business Airport. Staff calls it a win-win scenario in a report, as the money would be used to make the airport more attractive to businesses, but it could require a sizable investment of RDA money, one-half million dollars of which has already been lost to the state budget. The RDA meeting begins after the City Council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at 1735 Montgomery St. First, the Federal Aviation Administration has to relinquish land to the RDA to sell. "The money from selling industrial land would have to go back to improvements at the airport," said Eric Teitelman, director of community development and public works.
