Joplin, Missouri Airport Board and City Council: Preserve, protect and maintain Runway 5-23 in the new 20-year Master Plan for the Joplin, Missouri Regional Airport

Runway 5-23 at the Joplin Regional Airport is critical to safe flying operations, especially for the large percentage of airport users and tenants who fly smaller and lighter "general aviation" (non-airline) aircraft.  It is therefore essential that provisions be made in the new 20-year Airport Master Plan to preserve, protect and maintain this longstanding and valuable safety resource.

If Runway 5-23 is ever allowed to be destroyed, it will be gone forever.  There will be no getting it back.  To prevent a grave mistake, please urge the Joplin Airport Board and City Council to preserve and protect Runway 5-23 in the new 20-year Airport Master Plan.
