Land Acquisition, Noise Are Top Concerns in Plan for San Antonio Airport Expansion | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
Part of the problem is that the airport has not been a priority for San Antonio, Dickson said, so it's a matter of more closely connecting the airport to families.
Al Cannistra's insight:

IMO - big MISTAKE to make the airport bigger....  no matter what they do, it is still a city airport....  monies better spent marrying up with Austin and building a huge regional in between....   think beyond the small city concept that has been holding us back...
