Is it a surprise that Dania's legal counsel thinks the FAA should be fought? My God, this lawyer or friend will make big bucks! What is wrong with these people?

2500 people are going to stop the use of a much needed runway that will serve hundreds of thousands or millions of residents and visitors. This is another example of crazy politics and ego..

No, it is the handful of rich people and business interests that have paid off the Broward County Commissioners so that they will not be inconvenienced by the more logical runway choice, having a 2nd runway on the north! According to the FAA record of decision, the 2nd north runway alternative would be less expensive, less damaging to the environment, less damaging to surrounding communities, and provide a greater reduction in delays than the chosen south runway. However, there are certain personal hangers and business properties that would have to be moved if the 2nd north runway were constructed, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of dollars that constructions companies would miss out on by building a less expensive runway...

If Dania loses, how much will it cost taxpayers? Leave it alone. Let the expansion happen. In this economy, save the taxpayers' money and invest it in something - instead of spending it on a lawsuit that is dubious.

And then there are the airline pilots and air traffic controllers who have raised serious concerns about the safety of the proposed south runway being elevated at both ends!

this airport expansion is not needed...the consultants (paid for by the pro-expansion interests) were able to muster up that delays could increase 20 minutes 11 years from now. Gosh we better throw a billion dollars at them ASAP!!!(yes, literally the cost + overages)

total corrupiton all the time

If you google map the airport and do a satellite view, the "wetlands" seem to be miniscule. I do not believe that their will be extensive enviromental damage. Also, those that live near an airport should know what they are getting themselves into befor a purchase. Those homes should be the wetlands.

FAA tried to lie to us and screw us over. We fought back and helped get Bobby Sturgell ejected from office as FAA Acting Administrator. You can fight them too - and WIN. For more information, please see the link below:
