SAN DIEGO – September 29, 2015 – The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority will host a public community meeting featuring staff from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). San Diego residents will have an opportunity to get information about the FAA’s proposed SoCal Metroplex project. The project, which is intended to improve the efficiency of the airspace around Southern California’s airports, is accompanied by a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify possible environmental impacts that would result from the report’s recommendations. The deadline to submit written public comments on the draft EA through the FAA’s website is October 8.
The public meeting will be held from 6 –7:30 p.m. on October 6 at the Corky McMillin Companies Events Center in Liberty Station. At the request of the Airport Authority, representatives from the FAA will be on hand to answer questions about the project and the process, as well as explain how to submit public comments.
The SoCal Metroplex project, the draft EA and other related documents have been prepared exclusively by the FAA. Similar to other regional agencies and the public, the Airport Authority has reviewed the FAA’s information and submitted comments for consideration. Links to view the Airport Authority’s comments, information on the project, and draft EA can be found at www.san.org/metroplex.
