What               City of Chamblee City Council Work Session Featuring Presentation by Peachtree DeKalb Airport

When               Thursday, February 11, 2010
                         Beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Who                Lee Remmel, Airport Director for Peachtree DeKalb Airport (PDK), will be leading a presentation regarding the proposed changes to Class B airspace around Hartsfield Jackson Airport and Peachtree DeKalb airport.
Why                The presentation will address changes proposed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to restructure the Class B airspace surrounding Hartsfield. Suggested changes by the FAA include decreasing the lower elevation of Class B airspace to 5,000ft over PDK. The included changes will not only affect airspace near PDK but also the quality of life for those citizens living in the restructured flight paths. This includes neighborhoods within Dunwoody and Chamblee city limits. This presentation will aid in explaining the extent of the changes, the repercussions, and the best channels to support or oppose plan. Citizens of Dunwoody and Chamblee are strongly encouraged to attend this public meeting to learn more about these proposed changes by the FAA.

Info                 Parking is available at the Civic Center as well as the nearby Police Department.

This will impact Dunwoody, Chamblee, Doraville, and surrounding areas. I look forward to the PDK review of the proposal.
