Report finds Miramar could be joint-use airport
Tuesday, May 16, 2006
The report finds that establishing a joint-use airport at Miramar would not interfere with the military's operations there or its mission.
This is in spite of the military's position that it has no intention of allowing civilian air operations at its bases.
Authority President Thella Bowens defended the study from reporters who questioned whether it was a waste of money because of the military's stance.
Bowens: When you look at an issue that's this important to this community, the amount of money that we have spent is really quite miniscule, the long term benefits of having or not having a constrained airport.
The Airport Authority are expected to decide on a future airport site June 5th, with voters getting the final say in November. Beth Ford Roth, KPBS News.
