Subject: Support the Expansion at HVN
Body: You can edit below
Dear Members of the Board of Alders,
I am writing to encourage you to authorize the expansion at Tweed-HVN which is core to its strategic plan to build a modern and sustainable regional airport that will help our region.
The expansion at Tweed-HVN will create 1000 jobs, about $50 million in state and local taxes which can be invested in our community, and will support union jobs through $70 million in local construction work. At the same time this expansion will allow New Haven to end it’s million dollar taxpayer funded subsidy of the airport.
Not only that, the project provides for an investment of $5 million in community benefits which includes over $1.75 million in noise mitigation and environmental protection efforts, as well as major commitments to local traffic improvements in partnership with the city that will enhance safety and keep parking off of local streets.
This project will create a once in a generation opportunity to reduce HVN’s carbon footprint and position the airport as one of the most sustainable regional airports in the world. In addition to using the latest construction technology to meet LEED construction standards for energy conservation at the old and new terminals at Tweed-HVN will undertake an environmental assessment process to outline environmental impacts of the expansion and how to mitigate them.
Thank you for your service to our community. Please listen to our community and support the expansion of Tweed-HVN.
