BURBANK — Capping off years of debate, the tri-cities’ governing board of Bob Hope Airport announced it will present a plan to implement a mandatory curfew that would halt all late-night and early-morning flights at the airport, officials said.
But its passage could be in doubt if the Federal Aviation Administration grounds the plan.
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority will present a draft of the Part 161 Study, which would impose a mandatory curfew on all flights from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., to the public at its March 17 meeting, and conduct an initial study session, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.
The study will then be subject to a 45-day comment period, a public workshop and public hearing, for which dates have not been set. Then it will then undergo the FAA approval process, Gill said.
