Citizens Against Palomar Expansion
Commercial flights would greatly diminish the quality of life in Carlsbad, San Marcos, Oceanside and Vista and its surrounding neighbors, should the airport expansion go through. Noise pollution, cancer-causing jet fuel fallout,devastated property values, increased taxes, increased traffic and road congestion, increased crime, increased illness, and disruption of classrooms, hospitals, church services,and sleep are the realitiesfor the residents of North County if this unnecessary airport expansion occurs.
There is no need for another commercial airport so close (35 miles) to San Diego International Airport.The City of Carlsbad and its mayor, Matt Hall, along with Supervisor Bill Horn and the County of San Diego Airport Commission have vowed to commit to building a bigger airport. Still, residents, who can have the greatest impact, are needed to speak out against this atrocity by voicing their opposition.Let's protect ourselves from corporate and governmental greed by preserving the integrity of North County, and ultimately all of Carlsbad and surrounding neighborhoods, by killing this deal!
