After reading the article written regarding closure of the airport it struck me how contrary to common sense and civic responsibility this issue is. I’ve lived under the flight path in Ocean Park since 1974 and my property values have remained in an upward trajectory. Not because of anything the airport has brought to our community but because I live near the ocean. First rule of real estate! Location, location, location!!

But I have raised two children that can’t hear each other speak to each other in our home due to the noise and worried about the air pollution by gas powered aircraft directly over our heads. And finally not being able to sleep in any weekends due to the constant noise, sometimes as early as 5 a.m.

Who is this guy kidding? Get rid of an outdated and dangerous facility and make way for more green space in Santa Monica.
