North Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Question:
Why was land cleared between Hancock Airport and Taft Road near Kreischer Drive?Answer:
The land was cleared in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration rules.
Airport commissioner Chris Callahan says obstructions both on- and off-airport property must be removed if they could interfere with air navigation, navigational aids, or navigational facilities.
Because this is a federally funded project, there was an environmental review process that was followed and approved by the FAA before any land was cleared.If you have a question for the Your Stories team, call 446-9900 or email email@example.com.
