Public Mtg on Newport Airport- 14, April 2008

The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) will hold a public information meeting to review plans for vegetative removal (brush and tree clearing) and installation of obstruction lighting planned for Newport State Airport required to comply with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airport design standards. The Newport Airport Master Plan, made public in November of 2007, contains a section describing proposed recommendations regarding this clearing. A copy of the final Master Plan is available at under the General Aviation section.
The purpose of this meeting is for the RIAC staff to provide the public with a briefing of the summary FAA requirements and an outline of the project details. The meeting will take place on Thursday, April 24, 2008 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Middletown Town Hall on 350 East Main Road, Middletown, RI.

The last time the airport did the brush removal & lighting installation without notifying the public there were TONS of complaints. Those of you in the immediate vicinity of the airport may want to check this out.
