Spending $90,000 for another new FAA study when $100,000 dollars was recently spent by Erie County's "other" regional airport, Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport seems a tad wasteful?

How many "expert" studies and master plans do these special interests need to fool taxpayers into believing Plum Brook is desperately needed for a new regional airport?

The FAA has already spent millions of dollars on Huron, Sandusky, and Lorain County airports, plus the existing, modern Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport -- all of which can service their current and future customers well.

NASA can use Cleveland and Mansfield airports for the occasional needs.

A reminder that not only is Huron County County Airport too close to Plum Brook per FAA rules, so is the Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport, a mere 15 miles away!

Once again these "local economic experts" and special interests try spending other peoples money, making bad judgments and are poorly coached!

If Erie County taxpayers lust for their own airport, let them build it themselves with local money and not duplicate nearby current FAA funded airports and waste our money on this pork project.

The need for spending taxpayer money are far greater in so many other local areas.
