Petitions submitted to the FAA

January 28th, 2011 · 15 Comments

The Magnolia Community Club reports that it has collected and forwarded 74 pages of petitions to the FAA  in opposition to the proposal to lower the Class B airspace over Magnolia and parts of Ballard and Queen Anne. 

Well over one hundred people showed up at a Community Club meeting last November to express concern about the proposed change that would lower the floor from 3000 feet to 2000 feet above sea level.  That would mean larger planes flying lower and with more frequency over Magnolia.

 

The FAA will accept written comments (in triplicate) until Monday (1/31).  If you would like to submit your comments, click here for the information.

    OMG Airplane noise!!! WHO CARES!!! What about the National Deficit? What about Misappropriated funds by our local government? What about property tax hikes and levies? What about the unemployed? Who cares about Airplane noise when in 5 years the government is going to make it impossible to live here do to property tax. I really wish this people would put there passion and motivation behind something that actually matters. I have lived here and worked here over 27 years. Not ever have I ever had an issue with airplane noise at night. NOT ONCE!!! We live on top of the hill at the highest point to hear airplane noise. If you don’t want to hear Airplanes that move to the middle of nowhere and let the rest of us City folk worry about bigger and better things. Like saving our country from going BANKRUPT!!!!! Get a life people and stop your complaining.

    • you’re a hypocrite

      Yeah, because you’re not complaining, are you?

      Magman, saving the country from bankruptcy and preventing greater aircraft noise over Magnolia are both worthy causes. However I don’t think we are being asked to choose one or the other. But I will sleep well at night knowing that you are worrying about bigger and better things on my behalf.

    I’d like to setup a petition for the eliminating of the Magnolia Community Club?

    My assertion is that they’re all old white people who are crab apples. I would like to present my petition at one of their meetings. Are non-whites allowed in?

    • Anthony

      I don’t get it; are you trying to make the point that you don’t like white people, or only old white people?

        The MCC does not represent Magnolia and only further propagates the stereotype of the Magnolia resident. Old, rich, white and easily annoyed with the very infrastructure that the greater Seattle area and the region benefits from. It’s pure hypocrisy that the well-off people of Magnolia bite the hand that feeds this region. I live in Magnolia as well and the aircraft noise does not bother me. Yet I am unable to have any serious conversation with the MCC haters as they’re too busy waving their hands about this “injustice” over their skies. Also, add in the FOX style war drum banging about planes that could possibly crash over Magnolia with hazmat and such (as shown by previous posters in this forum). What amazes me is the increase in petty crime and theft in the neighborhood and the MCC would rather gripe about the noise of some Pratt and Whitneys.

    This is what I love about Magnolia, people care about the neighborhood and working to make it better. Thank you Magnolia Community Club and neighbors!

    Yawn. Rich people in Magnolia don’t want airplanes flying over them, even though Sea-Tac has been operating commercial flights since 1947- over six DECADES ago.

    You live in a city. There’s going to be airplanes. Get over it.

    Wah wah wah.

    I lived directly under the final approach for paine field, maybe south of 34L, and the plane noise wasn’t that bad, even though planes would be seemingly skimming the ground. It was pretty cool actually. Having airtraffic that high up is inconsequential. Just more “we spend more so we should be privileged”
