Hey DeLandites, the city’s airport advisory committee is meeting on June 9 and is open to the public. From deland.org:
The Airport Advisory Committee Meeting will be held on June 9, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Location: DeLand Aviation, 1210 Flight Line Blvd., DeLand, FL 32724. The meeting is open to everyone, so if you have any questions, ideas, concerns or would just like to know what is going on out here at your Airport, please join us.
Even if you don’t live in DeLand, this is a good reminder that most municipal airports in the U.S. have public hearing mechanisms like this. If your DZ operates on a public airport, find out if there is a public hearing schedule, particular committee or hearing process, and get involved in that process. Good relationships between airport users and the local community can eliminate problems before they’ve begun, or if there are issues, an established working relationship can go far in resolving those issues.
