Stop Tweed Expansion
Stop Tweed Expansion
Before we permanently destroy our little shoreline town, become a lost suburb of New Haven, property values decline and have our taxes raised, look into facts,follow the money and look at the other motives to create financial issues and physical change to the landscape of our town!
Look into cargo, large corporations pulling strings, capacity of each plane, frequency of flights, number of flights, increase in costs for maintenance, emergency services . Noise, road management, traffic, pollution, destroying natural habitats, 10,000 hawks migration pathways, wildlife preservation! Eminent domain to obtain homes for expansion! Fill in wet land! Right now there is a law - NO EXPANSION of Tweed. To change this law it must be approved by the taxpayers! Not EVER by the person elected to represent them! Job Promises, secrets, no transparency, no access to any administrator, complete disregard for Freedom of Information Act, accidents, traffic jams, constant large cargo transport on town roads! This is the nightmare coming soon if you do not participate, request information, get responses for information. Projections of cost vs income to town! The worst of all scenarios is a plane crash which has already happened several times in airport history! To date 33 deaths have occurred due to accidents!
Jettison fuel in emergency on homes, people, animals, grass, wildlife and ocean & beaches!
It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a non-hub primary commercial service facility.
Most people are unaware of the impact this will have on you!! Before it is too late be proactive not reactive! Stop this historic mistake before it is made!! SAY NO to TWEED EXPANSION!! Before we are silenced have a voice!!!!!
Fuel-dumping operations are coordinated with air traffic control, and precautions are taken to keep other aircraft clear of such areas. Fuel dumping is usually accomplished at a high enough altitude (minimum 6,000 feet, AGL), where the fuel will dissipate before reaching the ground. Fuel leaves the aircraft through a specific point on each wing, usually closer to the wingtips and farther away from engines, and initially appears as more liquid than vapor. Specific areas have been designated where fuel dumping is allowed to avoid damage or harm where the fuel may drop; generally speaking, this is above seas or unpopulated areas above land. Delta Air Lines Flight 89 is an example of fuel dumping that violated established regulations: on 14 January 2020, it dumped more than 10,000 gallons of fuel at a low altitude over a populated area in Los Angeles, causing injuries to 56 people including school children.
