Fast Focus 'Future of Vista Field:' See the future

February 24, 2013 

Unlike many of the most vocal supporters of keeping the airfield open, I live and pay taxes in the Port of Kennewick District. I have two questions:

First: Does your vision of this area 10, 15 or 20 years from now include an airfield in that location? Mine does not.

Second: Is the land occupied by the airfield at Vista Field more valuable developed for the region's retail, professional and entertainment center or as a place to land a few airplanes?

Please, let's get on with closing the airfield and making the land available for development.
