‘Town hall’ meeting set to discuss airport search
The San Diego (CA) North County Times
NORTH COUNTY —- A town hall meeting on the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s search for a new regional airport is set for 6 p.m. Monday at Westview High School in Rancho Penasquitos. The program includes a presentation on the site-selection program by authority board Chairman Joe Craver and authority President Thella Bowens.
A question-and-answer session will take place following their presentations.
San Diego International Airport’s Lindbergh Field is forecast to be out of room to handle expected growth within about 15 years. The airport is the busiest single-runway air field in the nation and saw more than 16 million passengers pass through it in 2004.
The authority will issue a site recommendation to voters next year in advance of a countywide vote in November.
Monday’s two-hour meeting takes place in Westview’s Performing Arts Center.
