Goleta City Councilman James Kyriaco spoke at the meeting and acknowledged the good that the airport brings to the city of Goleta, in terms of opportunities for travel and spillover economic impact.
He asked that a public workshop on the airport expansion be rescheduled to October so that a member of the FAA could attend.
“Let’s all make sure that we are on the same page, hearing the same story about what is and isn’t possible when it comes to noise,” Kyriaco said.
“What are the things within purview of local folks, what are the things only the domain and the jurisdiction of the FAA. I think if we all hear the same story, in the same room, at the same time, a lot of these issues of what we can and can’t do, would really be alleviated.”
