Signs, Signs - No Airport

Andy | Wednesday, August 31, 2011 | Best Blogger Tips

When the Ontario provincial government stated it would not build the roads or sewers needed to service the site, the plans were shelved in 1975. I'm linking to Lesley's Signs, Signs.




The proposal has never gone away and recent announcements have suggested that there is still a possibility it will be built. This is a newer sign that has been showing up as the fight continues.

  7. We have a Naval Air Station that is closing immediately adjacent to where I work and there was a proposal to convert it to a commercial airport, but the locals voted it down. There are similar signs around the area, I should take some photos, thanks for the idea!

  8. The newer sign has a very clever graphic, but the older one is much more direct.

  12. Those are funny signs at first glance, but too bad about the long-running controversy. Sounds like Eugene OR (our nearest 'big' city, which is infamous for dithering around.

    And on your comment (you can erase this before posting my comment!)....Andy Devine? Yep, I can just hear his hoarse voice. Brings back memories.
