While he doesn’t seem to endorse the common sense solution of not basing noisy F-15 and F-35 combat fighters at Boise’s Gowen Field, Idaho State Rep. John Gannon of district 17A has asked the Boise airport director to reject a noise study which potentially could cost nearly $100 million if implemented.
Gannon was critical of the public hearing process and lack of notification to him and other citizens when a noise impact survey was conducted prior to September 23. His letter: Gannon re Noise Study.
VISTA NEIGHBORS held their own meeting Sept. 23 and the 80 attendees were not happy with plans to base noisy fighters at Gowen.
Boise’s airport will hold another public meeting Wednesday Dec. 9 at the terminal building 5:30 p.m. Here is a LINK to their announcement. Parking will be validated for free. Note to legacy media: this is worth covering as it involves millions of dollars and potential to displace as many as 200 homeowners.
The GUARDIAN will not be able to attend due to a prior commitment, so we would appreciate any citizen reports and photos. Send them to the CONTACT button at above right on this page.
