It is disconcerting that Audrey Shauer challenges the City Council to have the “cajones” to bulldoze the Santa Monica Airport in the middle of the night (“Shut it down,” Letter to the Editor, March 23).

I guess that is her version of real civic planning as well as a way to get the taxpayers in trouble when the city has to come up with millions in fines for such an arbitrary act. The Santa Monica City Council really needs to look at the facts regarding the airport instead of the whims of people who are engrossed in perpetuating myths and innuendo about an airport that does exceedingly well within a complex urban environment. Also, please get a Santa Monica Airport Commission with some members who have a background in aviation to better advise the City Council.
