NEWS ALERT — SANTA MONICA AIRPORT PETITION IS NOT ENDORSED BY RESIDOCRACY

RECONSIDER THE SANTA MONICA AIRPORT BALLOT INITIATIVE

It’s been brought to our attention that some
Santa Monica residents may be having second
thoughts over having signed the Airport-re-
lated ballot initiative petition that’s cur-
rently being circulated by others.

It is our understanding that this ballot ini-
tiative is solely funded by the national Air-
craft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA)
and has not been endorsed by Residocracy or by Residocracy’s Community Network of Residents.

While the petition language talks about pre-
venting over-development at Santa Monica Air-
port by requiring voters to approve changes
ahead of time, the actual goal of AOPA seems
to be preserving the “status quo,” both for
pilots flying jets and prop planes in and
out of the airport, and for aviation busin-
esses based at the airport. According to
their web site, “AOPA has committed to offer-
ing nationwide support to the effort to pro-
tect the historic airport.”

The AOPA sponsored ballot initiative was
launched less than 48 hours after the Santa
Monica City Council unanimously adopted a
plan to look into how the airport could ei-
ther be shut down or have its operations sig-
nificantly cut down when the operating agree-
ment with the FAA expires on July 1, 2015.
