1. So, if a tower is added, planes will no longer fly over my house (or the noise will go away) even though it is aligned with the runway? I find that hard to believe. I guess if I lived in Genoa, I wouldn’t care much about the noise that the planes make…since you can’t hear them there. Howard…move to Johnson Lane area and you may change your mind.

    I’m curious as to Howard’s interests in building a control tower…

    I’m also curious as to the actual money that the airport brings in…and I’m not talking fluff money. I don’t want to hear things like, “Starbucks wouldn’t have built here if the airport wasn’t here…thereby making $3 million in taxes for Douglas County”. I would really like to see a line item breakdown of money going to the county. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not for the airport shutting down. However, we should know it’s true worth.

  2. The airport has been there for a long, long time. Probably longer than your house. Everytime residential areas pop up around airports, comments like yours abound. You should have thought about the noise before you moved to Johnson Lane.

  3. I live in Johnson Lane and I don’t even hear the airplanes. I don’t know who these people are that are bothered by them. But I know that the airport was already here when they moved here. My house has been here 30 years, but that’s only half the time the airport has.

    I know that the low drone of a glider tow plane, or the sight of a fire bomber coming in to refill, are part of living in the valley, and I wouldn’t want to lose that.
