Opposition to New Madison County Airport Continues

A group of about 30 people waited patiently through a long Anderson City Council agenda Thursday night to speak to the council about the Anderson airport.  The No Fly Zone group presented the council with a petition of more than 1,000 signatures from people who oppose a new airport in southwest Madison County. In May, the town of Fishers initiated a feasibility study concerning the relocation of Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport to southwest Madison County. An area of 4,000 acres in Green and Stony Creek townships was identified, and the study was released in August, with recommendations for further examination. In early October, the Anderson Board of Aviation Commissioners authorized more studies from the town of Fishers for the future.   Members of the No Fly Zone questioned why the study was being done at all.
