Ken Patterson , senior aeronautical specialist for the Airspace Safety Analysis Corp. of Atlanta , Ga. , disagreed with Kolman and Jackson , saying the powerlines near the runway in question posed a greater safety threat.
Patterson said he has often worked with the FAA and many municipal airports in such matters , and he helped write the instrument approach procedures the FAA uses.
Patterson said the FAA approval of the tower took into consideration the airport's future goals.He said the tower would stand 120 feet above the airport surface , given the varied topography of the surface , and be more than 6 , 000 feet from the airport.
According to the FAA , the powerlines exceed the approach slope.The bottom line is the FAA has looked at this , Patterson said.
Kolman said the fact that the FAA approved the placement of the powerlines proved the government agency doesn't take into account what is planned in the future.
Several members of the Planning Commission expressed concerns about approving a measure that longtime airport and city officials are adamantly against.
Thrasher suggested that Patterson and Nextel work with airport officials on a tower site both could agree on , but Villines opted not to table the request and focus on the site they've decided on..
