Council candidates to discuss Santa Monica Airport issues
The Los Angeles (CA) Times

Air pollution and noise at the Santa Monica Airport will be among the issues
discussed Sept. 13 at a Santa Monica City Council candidates forum.
Fifteen council candidates, including two incumbents, vying for four open
seats have been invited to participate, according to Martin Rubin, an
airport opponent who will moderate the event. The health and safety effects
of flight school operations and jet traffic will be among the topics. 

Rubin and other activists want candidates to share their views regarding the
future of the 227-acre airport. 

In 2015, all land and building leases at the airport expire, and city
officials - and thousands of Westside residents weary of life in the flight
path - say the obligation to operate the facility as an airport ends, too. 

The Federal Aviation Administration, meanwhile, asserts the city must
operate the airport in perpetuity under a 1948 "instrument of transfer." 

The forum is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Santa Monica Business
Park, 3250 Ocean Park Blvd., Suite 160.
