Some neighbors have concerns, mostly about noise -- and they had a chance to ask questions of city, county and Federal Aviation Administration officials about the project Monday night.

 

The first step is an environmental assessment.  Airport Manager Gary Judd says they are trying to better separate helicopter from airplane traffic.

 

"It'll basically lessen congestion.  Also the ground operation with separate the helicopters to land on a 100 by 100 concrete pad and the fixed wing aircraft will have their own area.  This should less traffic and given helicotpers more area to operate in."

 

The Environmental Assessment is expected to take about nine months and then if all goes smoothly and funding is secured, the landing area could be build between 2015 and 2016.
