Public Hearing: Say NO to Expansion of Westchester's Airport!

  • Show Map Little Theater at Westchester County Center 198 Central Avenue White Plains, NY 10606 (map)

Join us on July 27 at a public hearing to speak out against the recently-released draft of the Westchester County airport master plan, which calls for massive expansion of the airport!

The draft plan calls for major increases in the number of flights (ignoring current passenger caps) and development of a corner of the airport that drains into the Kensico Reservoir, which provides the drinking water for 9 million people — including most of Westchester and New York City! Further, the trumped-up plan calls for $462 million in construction, but simultaneously makes the claim that development will not increase the airport's greenhouse gas emissions.

Help us stand up for Westchester's communities and environment by speaking out against expansion, and privatization, of the airport!

*Doors open at 6:00 p.m. There will be free parking at the County Center parking lot.

The coalition to oppose privatization and expansion of the Westchester County airport is spearheaded by Citizens for a Responsible County Airport (crcairport.org), and includes Sierra Club Lower Hudson, Food & Water Watch, Westchester for Change, WESPAC Foundation, Federated Conservationists of Westchester County, Purchase Environmental Protective Association, Grassroots Environmental Education, We Persist, Indivisible Westchester, and Lower Hudson Valley Progressive Action Network.
