The debate surrounding the expansion of Briscoe Field in Gwinnett County, and the possible introduction of commercial air service, is one that could be had in almost any suburban area with a runway. Below, two players in the debate weigh the pluses and minuses of such development.
Mike Royal, a member of Fly Gwinnett Forward, writes that allowing service would expand the quality of life and lift the economic climate.
Jim Regan, a member of Citizens for a Better Gwinnett, believes it would bring noise, harm quality of life and property values.
