AIRPORT DISTRICT — A proposed curfew that would ban late-night and early-morning flights at Bob Hope Airport has enjoyed widespread support throughout Burbank and the region, officials said Monday.
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which is asking the Federal Aviation Administration to accept a ban on arrivals and departures at Bob Hope from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., has received 166 responses during the ongoing public comment period. More than 120 of those support the proposed ban, while 33 have spoken out against the measure. Others have written to the authority without expressing an opinion, according to airport spokesman Victor Gill.
At a meeting Monday in the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, a parade of supporters told the authority of the virtues of banning flights over Burbank and the surrounding neighborhoods at night, and asked that other San Fernando Valley residents be looked after as well.
