Now that the issue of the high-density zoning has been halted at the airport for now, I would like to thank Mayor Ray Schum, Barbara Brewer and Hoby Herron for their support on this issue.
They have personally followed the Airport Master Plan for the airport closely over the past two years.
We presently have high-density housing on all sides of the airport. Adding an additional 200-plus homes in the GPS marginal weather system pattern is no way to ensure ground safety and noise problems in that location. ADOT, the town's airport advisory board plus the town's zoning board were correct in advising the town that the present development should not be rezoned.
Thank you again, Mayor Schum.
Dee Lunden, Payson
