CALL TO ACTION REGARDING JWA GENERAL AVIATION!!!!

 

PLEASE ATTEND THE UPCOMING ORANGE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING onTuesday, September 10that 9:00 a.m. at the Board Hearing Room, 333 West Santa Ana Blvd., 10 Civic Center, Santa Ana. The following is a link to the agenda: http://cams.ocgov.com/Web_Publisher/agenda09_10_2019.htm

 

The meeting will address the Request for Proposal (RFP) bid process for the General Aviation Improvement Program (GAIP) that was recently passed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors (BOS).  During the June 2019 BOS meeting, the Board voted to approve Supervisor Steel’s motion, which proposed, among other things, that JWA maintain the current mix of small GA piston planes to GA larger jets. During discussions between BOS and airport staff members at the June meeting, it was clear that the “mix” was based on 2016 data. The best way to assure that the 2016 “mix” is maintained, is to keep the current hangar configuration on the 35.6 acres allotted to small GA at JWA. This means that the majority of hangars need to be no larger than 40 feet in width. Presently 76% of the hangars are 40’, 15% are 50’ and 9% are 60’.  Information provided at the June meeting from the SoCal Pilots indicated that many small jets can be housed in 49’ hangars. Accordingly, it is imperative that the majority of hangars be limited to 40’, as they are today. 

 

JWA staff-prepared RFP bid documents, being submitted to the BOS for approval at the September 10th meeting, fail to include anything pertaining to preservation of the 2016 mix or the current GA hangar configuration. The documents also fail to provide for public transparency in the process, as has been repeatedly requested by community groups, concerned citizens and city leaders. It is important that we stress to the BOS that JWA is a pubic asset and we all have the right to be informed as to the decisions being made that will impact our lives and communities for years to come. 

 

If the 2016 “mix” is to be retained at JWA, which is critical to our efforts to keep large private jets from further inundating our communities with even more noise and pollution, the County must preserve the current hangar configuration. This information must also be included in the RFP bid documents that will be distributed/posted to prospective Fixed Base Operators (FB0s) that will be bidding on the privilege of designing, constructing and managing the new GA facilities and that will also be recipients of 30-year leases. 

 

A big turnout is absolutely crucial to our efforts to protect our families and communities from the added noise and pollution from more large and loud GA jets flying over hour homes 24/7. PLEASE ATTEND!!!
