Again...if an airport is such a great idea..then why are the residents over near Dekalb Peachtree so up in arms about property being sold for expansion. 400 flights per day are predicted at that airport. Folks are beyond upset at the current noise level for the flight load there now. I think these people speak VOLUMES for us. http://www.ajc.com/news/dekalb/rezoning-plan-revives-dekalb-1418560.html Tax dollars at the expense of residents in the area....sounds familiar.

And if thats NOT enough try this: Hartsfield airspace plan may have repercussions across DeKalb, Gwinnett http://www.ajc.com/news/hartsfield-airspace-plan-may-1393556.html The Federal Aviation Administration proposal calls for allowing planes at the international airport to fly as low as 4,000 feet above the ground and extending the Class B space, which is handled by air traffic controllers. As a result, jets flying into DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, the state's second busiest airport, would need to be lower, longer over neighborhoods stretching from central DeKalb County and well into Gwinnett. Agency reports show the change is needed to handle crowded skies made more busy with the 2006 addition of a fifth runway at Hartsfield-Jackson. People living near PDK have complained about those problems with the county-owned airport for 20 years. This time, residents and airport officials appear to be on the same side – as do many of the written comments already posted with the FAA.
