Officials are discussing what improvements should be made at New York’s Westchester County Airport.
The county has begun a yearlong process to come up with a master plan.
Its deputy commissioner of public works and transportation says safety and efficiency are priorities.
Residents, aviation business owners and pilots gave their input at a meeting this week.
The Journal News (http://lohud.us/15Nmi9i ) says a major topic was the importance of one of the airport’s runways.
In 2015, it must be shortened to make way for a 300-foot safety zone required by the FAA. There are concerns that the runway might be shut down entirely.
The vice president of the Westchester Aviation Association says the loss of the runway could lead to major delays.
A study is under way to find a solution.
