Just drove down Schonenersville Road and saw big for sale signs of airport property. I came back on Willowbrook Road and saw more signs. I guess someone at the airport figured out that they do not need to expand the airport for 45 take-off and landings/day. They stopped two housing developments- Windwillow and one in North Catty. The curbing and sewer lines are in place for that development. What did it cost to buy all this land and then lose a law suit on top of it. No vision on the part of the airport board.

I guess no one is wondering why the airport is selling the property it "confiscated" from Hanover Township and the Catty school district. I know of about ten homes that were purchased and leveled for what? The new runway to handle 45 flights a day? Once again, this is a good example of govt. in action spending taxpayers money foolishly. Families were uprooted for a board that showed no vision at all. All they care about is fencing because they must have a friend who has a fencing business. Why did they fence in the land across from Gregory's? To keep the groundhogs out and away from the runway.
