SMO – Measure D Loses Pro Aviation Will Continue the Fight

SantaMonica AirportVoters agree to leave fate of Santa Monica Airport to City Council Westside Today

In a step that could move Santa Monica Airport closer to closure, voters agreed to allow the City Council to make decisions regarding the fate of the airfield and rejected an effort by aviation groups to require a public vote on any effort to shutter the facility or restrict aviation activity.

Although city officials are still in a power struggle with the federal government over the future of the 227-acre airport, passage of Measure LC on Tuesday’s ballot gave the City Council a vote of confidence from residents.
