Council members differ on flights out of Lunken



The Cincinnati Enquirer

What Cincinnati Councilman John Cranley introduced as a "compromise" to the Lunken Airport debate Wednesday was criticized by two of his colleagues as premature.

Cranley's motion would ban all scheduled flights out of the city-owned airport - a solution he said would allow the city to invest in the airport for corporate users without raising anxieties about increased air traffic from the surrounding neighborhoods.

His proposal goes to the Community Development and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee, where chairman David Crowley, a fellow Democrat, opposes it.

Crowley said City Council should allow the Lunken Airport Oversight Advisory Board to finish its recommendations before deciding the airport's future.

Charterite Jim Tarbell also argued that the city should "leave our options open."
