Santa Monica 에 있는 소형 공항인 Santa Monica Airport 의 폐쇄여부를 놓고 Santa Monica 시와 연방정부가 의견충돌을 빚고 있습니다. 

시와 주민들은 공항의 임대계약이 종료되는 2015년에 공항을 폐쇄하고 싶어하는 반면, FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) 이 주관하는 항공행위에 대한 계약은 2032년까지 되어 있어서 그럴 수 없다는 반론이 부딪히고 있습니다.

Farmers Field 의 EIR에 대한 Public Comment 기간이 연장될 것 같다는 보도입니다.

기사중에 주민들이 우려하는 내용을 잘 정리한 내용이 들어있네요. 다음과 같은 부분입니다. 

From Skid Row, south Park and the historic core of downtown, more than a dozen Angelenos stood to tell city officials that the environmental impact report drafted by AEG underestimates the gentrification Farmers Field will bring to their neighborhoods. Those affiliated with the Los Angeles Community Action Network wore orange T-shirts and stickers reading “Play Fair at Farmers Field.”

Low-income resident Debra Burton said she fears being displaced. Like James, she argued that the environmental review fails to explain why AEG expects up to 20 percent of fans to leave their cars at home.

“They don’t have proof of that,” Burton told city planners. “It don’t reflect the experience of stadiums, the Staples center or any other football stadium in the country. Even where the transit system is much better than Los Angeles.“

That point was echoed by Natural Resources Defense Council lawyer David Pettit. He took part in the negotiations around SB 292, a state law that has given Farmers Field an expedited judicial review. Pettit said AEG made that law possible by promising to encourage people to use mass transit and bicycles to get to games.

“The other thing they promised is that the entire project including the stadium would be carbon neutral,” Pettit said. “I was disappointed to see that there was no analysis, zero, of any of the measures they might take to reach either of these goals."
