Stop Briscoe Expansion Petition Surpasses 800 Signatures

Quality of Life petition gaining momentum.

Gwinnett citizens are taking time to make their opinion about the proposed expansion of Briscoe Field known.  As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 800 persons have signed the petition, many of which have left comments.

Recent comments include:

I believe that commercial aviation from Briscoe Field will destroy the quality of life for the surrounding home owners and lower the property values. I am a frequent business flyer and would gladly continue to travel to Hartsfield- Jackson Airport rather than see commercial traffic at Briscoe Field.

Barbara W.

Homeowners here purchased a "quality of life" which does not include the degradation that will occur to the area if commercial expansion occurs. Decreased home values, noise, and the possibility of taxpayers getting stuck with the costs of the airport if it doesn't pan out are not acceptable. The problematic commissioners can be dealt with at election time, but the ongoing devastation this would bring will last far longer than any election...Wake up people!!!

Look at the area around Peachtree-Dekalb Airport,. What a terrible area it has become. And proponents seek to fly even larger planes out of Briscoe Field.

Aside from signing this online petition, one of the most effective things citizens can do is attend the Jan. 24th Board of Commissioners meeting at the Justice and Administration Center at 7:00. Wear red to show your opposition to Briscoe Field expansion.
