An umbrella group made up of San Fernando Valley residents, business people and community activists on Tuesday formally announced its opposition to a proposed curfew at Bob Hope Airport that would restrict flights from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. The group ? Valley Vote ? cited plans by airport officials to shift flights from Burbank to other regional airports as the root of their resistance to what would be the first curfew of its kind if approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. If the ban is enacted, more than 30 flights will be rerouted to Van Nuys Airport and five flights to Los Angeles International Airport.

BURBANK — More than a dozen residents have already chimed in since the 45-day public comment period began Monday for Bob Hope Airport’s proposed mandatory curfew. “Most have been supportive, but one party took more of an airline approach,” airport spokesman Victor Gill said. “The general tenor of their letter was [that the curfew] tends to be an unfavorable development for commerce.” The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on March 17 unanimously approved the Part 161 Study, which included a mandatory 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew on all flights with an exception only for emergencies and a one-hour grace period for weather-delayed flights.

The second phase of Burbank-Glen- dale-Pasadena Airport's Part 161 noise impact study started Friday. The study, which commenced in July 2000, is an in-depth noise analysis required by the Federal Aviation Administration before it will consider approving a mandatory curfew on flights. If Burbank succeeds in obtaining federal approval, it will be the first airport in the country to do so. The first phase of the study provided a forecast of future aviation activity and passenger traffic without a 10 p.m.-to- 7 a.m.-curfew.

In regard to the Dec. 29 letter from Mel Wolf: Mr. Wolf's complaint against Measure A is that it requires that our City Council exercise judgment. What's wrong with that? A debt of gratitude is owed to Mayor Bob Kramer and Councilwoman Stacey Murphy for stating their belief that the role of the council is to exercise judgment by interpreting laws, codes, etc. The intent of Measure A is to restrict airport expansion unless a curfew and a limit on the increase in the number of flights is in effect.

BURBANK ? The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority will take the first step Monday in what could be a lengthy process to enact a mandatory restriction on night and early morning flights at Bob Hope Airport. The authority plans to hold a public meeting Monday in the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, a last-minute change from the usual confines of the airport?s Sky Room. The venue switch was made to accommodate what could be a crush of community activists who have followed the trajectory of the curfew that would restrict all flights arriving or departing at the airport from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., spokesman Victor Gill said.
