Hawthorne – No Surprise – City Council Votes Pro-Housing

Vote signs off despite regulators’ concerns that proposed 176-house neighborhood and store will be too close to city’s airport.

Hawthorne signed off this week on plans to build an entirely new neighborhood of high-end homes alongside the municipal airport, waving off concerns that runways and residents don’t mix. The homes and a new Target megastore will replace an abandoned research center just east of the airport’s runway, almost under the flight path of arriving planes. City leaders have praised the project as a way to bring new homeowners into the city and to recycle a patch of blighted land.

Dear Mayor Guidi,

At your December 12 meeting of the Hawthorne City Council, I spoke on the subject of the proposed development (Central Park project) to the east of your city airport. I support the decision of the Airport Land Use Commission in opposing the planned development as its being inconsistent with the airport?s land use plan.
