Farmers And Residents Near The Site Voice Strong
The city council in Cleveland, Tennessee, is moving ahead with
plans to build an airport on land it has purchased for that
purpose, despite the fact that it is outside the city limits and
over the strong objections of people living near the site.
For now, the 311 acre tract is a corn field.
The city is seeking permission from the state aeronautics
division to move ahead with the zoning changes required to build an
airport on the land. Television station WDEF reports that airport
board chairman Lynn Devault is requesting that letter. "I have no
indication that they would not authorize us to do that ...Because
that's just part of the procedure in the state law," she told the
But nearby residents say they will do all they can to make it as
hard as possible for the city to get the airport built. They say
their property rights in the 24,000 acres surrounding the airport
site are being stripped with no compensation, including the height
of buildings, use of solar panels, and the ubiquitous complaint
near an airport ... noise. Already they have managed to persuade
the county government to force the city to vote against the zoning
change, meaning additional hoops for the city to jump through to
get the changes.
Proponents of the new airport say a modern replacement is needed
for Hardwick Field in Bradley county, which has a 3,300 foot
runway. "We have 9 different agencies that are coordinating on this
airport," Devault told the station. "(It)...Takes a long time..it's
a long process to go."
