They can open a driving school and teach the nimrods around horsham how to keep up with the car in front of them (aka keeping with the flow of traffic), and that their cars come standard with turn-signals and its free to use them.

Don't believe anything you hear from any board saying that land will be used for ..... Look at the Pennsauken New Jersey Market situation. They tore down the old market using excuses of age, etc.
First they promised to use it for a new site for the State Fair/Convention. Then it was to be something for a common development/business area. NOW, they have snuck in what they really intended.. Luxury townhomes!!!! Yippee. We really need more housing that we cannot afford.
Question: What is the percentage of occupied condos on that site on Haddonfield Road near Route 70? 275K to start (retirement property? You have got to be kidding) plus $300 per month fee and 7K taxes per year for a one bedroom condo! Wow! Just what I always dreamed of owning! BEWARE Willow Grove!

The electronics for landing/tackoff are the best on the eastern seaboard. They are better than any commercial airport in New York, DC, Philly!It is a true fact. It should be kept as an airport and an alternative to philly. Ever try to fly out of there.The airport could land the new 787 and airbus

The air business is shrinking causing flights to go up. Maybe we could get southwest and jet blue into the airport. It would be a steady stream of income for the twsp and create jobs.

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH I forgot jets make noise so set limits on landing the aircraft.Make it an overseas airport....It could be made into flights to/from Europe only!

Hows Johnstown/Warminster NAS coming alone. Expensive homes and some business. Willow Grove will be a ghost town. We do not need another mall or over priced homes.

WAKE UP PEOPLE AND THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!!!!!!!!!!Killing the airport is wrong
Keep Open
