Re: We need a new airport!!!

Here's my concern. These types of issues should have been known and discussed well before it approached a formal vote. This just makes our city look stupid. If you have problems with the MOU, discuss those problems with the vendor, if they refuse to resolve them (which it doesn't sound like what ha...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Am I the only one that sees this as positive? We have AECOM...the 800 lb gorilla chomping at the bit to do this for us and the bandwidth to do it....and edgemoor over a barrel to give the city what they want or we move on. Sure negotiation is ugly and kind of a gross way it showed itseof yesterday ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

while certainly a disappointment, let's remember that the council still has voter approval to tear down the old terminal(s) and build a new single terminal. today's outcome doesn't change that, it just alters the timeline and the people involved (and makes the council look bad). The language was sp...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

It does appear the MOU could use more financing definition....the only thing further defined was protecting edgemoor. Shame on the city-hired attorneys who worked on this, right?! Something appears severely out of place, whether it is a process, people, other motivations, etc. It seems rather messy...

Fencing has gone up around it. proposed 2-story parking garage. no development application has been filed. rumor ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I wonder if we will start seeing an uptick in flights before the New Terminal starts, or if we will have to wait for 4 years before we see any. I wouldn't expect SW adding additional flights until the new terminal opens - they're effectively maxed out with their current gate allocation. Alaska, Uni...
