Weigh in on airport changes at public hearing

Midtowners have expressed a lot of opinions about the future of the airport, and now they have a chance to weigh in officially at the first public hearing tomorrow.

Here’s more from a city announcement:

The City of Kansas City, Mo.’s Airport Terminal Advisory Group will hold its first public hearing on Tuesday, Dec. 3 in the City Council chambers, on the 26th floor of City Hall, 414 E. 12th St. The meeting starts at 7:30 a.m., with public testimony beginning at 8 a.m.

Residents are invited to voice their opinions about potential changes to the configuration of Kansas City International Airport’s terminals. Each person speaking will have a two-minute limit.

The advisory group comprises community members from across the metro area appointed by Mayor Sly James. Members have been meeting twice a month since July to study airport issues and learn more about airport operations and the potential impact of any change.

The group expects to make a recommendation in April 2014 to Mayor James and the City Council. The City Council must approve any new plans for the terminal configuration, and the public must vote on any change requiring issuing bonds to finance the project.

There will be more opportunities for public comments during upcoming town hall meetings, to be scheduled in February and/or March.
