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.
