MORE PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON AIRPORT PLANS
This paper presents a critical review of airport planning over the last 20 years, stressing that the situation which has existed in the past, namely that almost every mid-size community wanted an airport, has changed in the sense that airports must now be considered within the framework of long range environmental planning. Thus, airport planning can no longer be internalized, i.e., concerned only with the requirements of air traffic in its vicinity. Instead, air transport must be integrated into a total system of transportation, with attention to the health of the environment and the quality of life in the community it serves.
