Environmental Assessment Study Comments

The executive summary of the draft environmental assessment study was distributed and discussed by the Citizens Advisory Committee at its 3rd and final meeting on February 22, 2010.  Shortly thereafter copies of the study were placed in public buildings throughout the community and made available online at the City of Ann Arbor Municipal Airport website.
