Jackson Expresses Concerns Over Airport Land Use Plan

Jackson Expresses Concerns Over Airport Land Use Plan 

The Jackson City Council expressed concerns over a draft Airport Land use plan and looked to sign up extra help with its sewer plant at their meeting last night.   The Council voted to approve a letter responding to an update of the Westover Fields land use plan. As with the Sutter Creek City Council last week, the primary point of concern is that the Land Use plan, as administered by the Airport Land Use Commission, would have the power to veto development projects within the City of Jackson.   Councilmember Wayne Garibaldi put it plainly when he said he would rather see the airport shut down than see it able to impose restrictions on development within Jackson.     The Council also approved a contract with the firm Aquality to provide personnel to man the city's wastewater system.  Two recent retirements have left the City shorthanded on staffing and the city is legally required to have a certified wastewater specialist at all times.  The firm is already providing services to the city as Jackson works to prevent water quality violations such as those that caused the City to be fined earlier this year.
