Neighbor wants conditions for Great Barrington airport permit, future expansion
Neighbor wants conditions for Great Barrington airport permit, future expansion.
GREAT BARRINGTON — As Berkshire Aviation tries to get town approval for three new hangars at Walter J. Koladza Airport, one opponent is doubling down.
"The special permit [request] gives the town leverage," he said.
Fasteau submitted a list of conditions to the Select Board, which he sought to attach to a special permit for zoning compliance, ahead of Monday’s continued public hearing.
It needs approvals before it can build the hangars in its residential/agricultural zone off Seekonk Cross Road and Route 71.
The Planning Board will have to approve all of this if the Select Board approves the special permit.
His conditions would require the town do an environmental assessment.
In the list of conditions, Fasteau explains that his well water tested well above Environmental Protection Agency standards for lead.
Fasteau is also asking that Berkshire Aviation only use unleaded fuel, a request Krentza said he is willing to consider.
Some smaller airplanes require leaded fuel to prevent engine problems.
