Please make a note that the Coalition will host an important double-event on Saturday, February 1st at the BelleFair Homeowner Association Community Room in Rye Brook, and we need your help to plan it successfully.
The Feb 1 event we are planning will have two sessions, tentatively organized as follows:
> Session 1 (11:00-12:30): Airport Matters … ‘for Dummies’
> Session 2 (1:00-3:00): Mobilizing for the 2020 Airport Master Plan
The Airport Matters information session is open to the public
and will feature:
> a robust public Q&A period, featuring leading community and environmental advocates,
> a concise presentation aimed at familiarizing residents about the new year’s most impactful airport-related issues — plus what’s being overlooked,
> key factors at the airport that shape our concerns and what can be done about them,
> discussion about how regular people leading busy lives can still make a difference in protecting ourselves and our communities.
The Airport Master Plan Mobilization session:
> is open to Coalition supporters by invitation as well as representatives from impacted communities and groups.
> will focus on how to ensure robust public input and influence over the County’s development of a new Master Plan this year.
Unlike with prior Master Plans, this version’s public input process will begin soon and presents us with a unique opportunity to shape airport policy for years to come, but also some risk if enough of us don’t speak out loud and clear.
Would you please help us with our planning? We need your ideas and suggestions THIS WEEK in advance of our Friday mid-day planning meeting. Just reply to this email.
Thanks for your support this year and here’s to an even more successful 2020 for our Coalition.
