THE BEST OF SOUTHWEST MINNEAPOLIS — brought to you by the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association (LYNAS)
Join MSP FairSkies for “No Fly Day” on Sat. Oct. 24, at noon at the Lake Harriett Band Shell (look for MSP FairSkies Coalition signs.)
Special guest speaker, State Representative Frank Hornstein, and other officials will be there right at noon to talk about important issues, initiatives and impacts of our metro area aviation noise problems. You’ll want to hear what he has to say (that is if we can hear over the sounds of those low-flying planes.)
What are we celebrating? Oct. 24 is National “No Fly Day” with many events being held around the U.S. Learn more at: http://noflyday.org/
And…remember that public meeting back in August where the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) presented its MSP Long Term Comprehensive Plan (LTCP)? Many of you attended and some of you wrote to elected officials to voice concerns about airport expansion, more flights and bigger planes. Your efforts, along with those of our city and state officials, paid off. The MAC decided to delay publication of the LTCP until the FAA completes an evaluation of runway use at MSP. Stay tuned—we will want to review the new data before the next steps in the MAC’s MSP LTCP.
We’ll talk about the LTCP and the impact of the FAA at MSP on Sat. Oct. 24—Join us!
Meanwhile, you can read about the “pause” by the MAC at: https://www.macnoise.com/news/mac-board-defers-publication-msp-long-term-comprehensive-plan.
Thanks, neighbors, for all you do. We will see you on the 24th-and bring a friend.
We live here!
