Proposed Changes to Airspace Over the Metro Area
Citizens are encouraged to attend FAA’s Workshop to learn more
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) about the Denver Metroplex Project. This proposed project would “allow for more direct and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Denver and surrounding airports; thus enhancing aviation safety and reducing flight delays,” according to the FAA.
“I hope citizens will join us to learn more about this project and the potential impact to Littleton and other south metro area cities,” said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman. “I am concerned about the lack of information from the FAA about the possibility that flights that are now east of I-25 and south of DIA will be rerouted to a new corridor that includes Littleton,” Brinkman said.
There are 12 meetings scheduled during the 45-day public comment period which concludes on June 6, 2019. The meeting in Littleton will be held on May 9 from 5-7:30 p.m. in the Half Moon Room at Arapahoe Community College, 5900 South Santa Fe Drive.
The 153-page DEA and 131-page Appendices can be found on the project website: http://www.metroplexenvironmental.com/denver_metroplex/denver_docs.html. Those who can’t attend the Denver Metroplex workshop can provide input on the website. Copies of the DEA can also be viewed at Bemis Public Library and 76 other libraries around the state.
