It has been a few months since we got the MAC to vote for partial implementation of the RNAV technology. Since this vote, many of us have been busy behind the scenes setting up a new community group and website to organize for the long term. This group, called MSP FairSkies Coalition, is comprised of neighbors from the area looking to better understand the issues facing us and while continuing to put pressure on those officials who can impact change.
Check us out at www.mspfairskies.org. Tell you friends.

A group of residents from neighborhoods affected by proposed flight path changes at MSP Airports has formed and is called MSP FairSkies Coalition. Kenny neighborhood has two representatives on the coaltion. This group will help keep neighborhoods engaged and informed on airport related issues. They will also be considering how the MSP Airport 2020 Expansion Plan could affect residents in the near future and will request that a proper environmental impact study is done.

In an effort to divert some traffic that has been seen heading/speeding along 61st West (thinking they have a straight shot to Lyndale) but instead end up speeding/wrapping around Grass Lake, a "No Access to Lyndale Ave" sign will be posted somewhere near 61st St W and Logan/Knox Ave S. The sign won’t be installed until spring, however.
