City of Zephyrhills: Please do not fence Skydive City "out" of Zephyrhills Airport

      Zephyrhills, FL

The City of Zephyrhills and the Zephyrhills Airport are planning to construct a chain-link security fence that would effectively 'cut off' the access for skydivers to the airport except for gate access.

Skydive City considers this to be intrusive, unnecessary and a severe risk to our business operation.

Skydive City already vets its customers and participants and has voluntarily implemented many security practices and procedures over the years.  

There are many ways to ensure security and we are willing to improve what we have without necessarily putting up a barricade.

      I have spent thousands of dollars in the local community of Z-Hills, FL due to coming there and jumping. Being 'cordoned' off by chain link fence does not show me that I am welcome (nor my $$). I have been coming to your fine city almost every year since 1977 just for skydiving - nothing else. If we are not welcome, I can always go to Deland, FL, as that airport welcomes us. PLEASE don't fence in Skydive City. Thank you.

      it's a wonderful and safety conscious drop zone and the only reason I visit Florida for a month or so each year. The rest of the town is pleasant, and full of welcoming, pleasant people, but the DZ is the only reason we're there vs somewhere else equally charming
