Commercializing the Paulding NorthWest Atlanta Airport
The Paulding NorthWest Atlanta airport vs. Silver comet field vs. the Paulding county residences.
Disagreement has been a part of life since the beginning of mankind. As far back as you can go in time you will find many types of disputes in an array of topics. People will form an opinion and/or ideas that won’t always attract 100% support among all parties involved. This is something that we can all see in our current administration and their introduction of the new “Affordable Care Act” aka “Obama Care”. There are certainly a ton of different views points that have surfaced over this matter.
One such dispute (not quit on the same scale) has begun in my home town with the introduction of transitioning our local airport, the Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport to the Silver Comet Field. The proposal will transform the airport from a general aviation airport to a commercial airport offering commercial flights to some major designated tourist towns.
Personally I can see both pros and cons of this intended venture. Supporters claim that it will bring jobs and will also help to stimulate local economy while non-supporters claim a decrease in home value and a rise in taxes. Because I am close friends with some parties from both sides I am not going to share my personal feelings. I will say, however, that I see holes in the claims of both sides.
If you live or have lived close to a commercial airport I would like to know your thoughts and experiences of that time. Did you see job grow? Did the property value drop or increase? What other changes did you recognize that could be associated with the commercial airport?
