Airport Neighbors in Action


Hi!  Thanks for visiting!  Please register or log in if you got here to take the Survey.  

At the top of most pages you will see a button (internal link) --


That is the Survey. It is important because the public is being written out; heard, but not much considered, as the MSP airport, airlines and businesses, some cities, and an assortment of other interests are planning flight operations and airport improvements for 2020 to 2040. The last Long-Term Comprehensive Plan update (2010) was controversial, the next draft plan (2015) was not published for public hearings, the 2020 plan is scheduled for public hearings in Fall 2020.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) is not including any environmental impacts reviews or the operations/year and cost limits set by the Legislature for 2020 and later.

We need your attention and your advice and your help for appropriate actions.

    Many thnnks to the respondents. We published a new page on the CRO situation. We hope cities and agencies appointed to the LTCP “Stakeholder’s Advisory Panel” are relentless about safety and climate change costs being considered; the airline appointees will be relentless about excluding environmental impacts (increased GHG emissions from closely-scheduled operations) and slow to commit to using new (different) aircraft and upgraded avionics for safety.
