The Path to an Environmentally-Friendly Landscape

Spring Forum

Sat., March 15

9-10:45 a.m.

                                                              Lynnhurst Community Center

Growing a healthy lawn in Minnesota can be a challenge.  Our first speaker will help you gain
a better understanding of how to create and maintain a healthy, more environmentally-friendly lawn.

If you’ve been thinking about having less of your high-maintenance lawn and more of an
environmentally diverse and sustainable landscape, but you’re not sure where to start, our second presentation will address the process.

Speakers: Sam Bauer, Turfgrass Extension Educator, University of Minnesota
Theresa Rooney, Hennepin County Master Gardener

Forum co-sponsored by the LEC and LYNAS

Action Alert – Minnesota House and Senate Meeting Set on RNAV

An important message from MSP FairSkies:

Neighbors,

The Minnesota House and Senate Transportation Committee is having a joint hearing at the State Capitol on Tuesday, March 4th at 7:00 PM in Room 15 to continue the fight on RNAV and the impact on our neighborhoods. Click here for the announcement http://mspfairskies.com/2014/02/22/senator-dibble-representative-hornstein-letter-22114/

The purpose of this hearing is to debate pending bills that, if passed, will address RNAV as well as airplane noise and air pollution in general.

This is an important meeting and we need you and your friends to attend to show our representatives that we care! Spread the word and we will see you there!

MSP Fairskies- No RNAV for Departures

The FAA announced this week that they will not implement RNAV technology for ANY departures out of MSP. Click here to view the letter from the FAA. Thanks to all of you for your support!

This is a huge win for us and would not have been possible without a united front. We hope you sign our thank you note to the local, state, and federal representatives thanking them for joining in the cause.

While we are very happy with this win, the FAA has said they could revisit this decision as early as next year. We need laws in place to guard us against any changes in the future.

In addition, airport noise and air pollution will still be a major problem for many throughout our neighborhoods and those in Richfield, Bloomington, Eagan, and Mendota Heights.

We must continue to rally for these remaining important issues:
- Mandating an environmental impact study (EIS) for all changes at
MSP – land and air
- Changing how noise is measured to be fair for all our neighborhoods
- Creating a long-term statewide aviation plan that addresses the
inevitable airport growth at MSP

So, the fight continues…

A joint House and Senate Transportation hearing on these issues is being held on March 4th.  Click here for more details.

Once again, it is important for us to have a strong showing at this hearing to demonstrate to our legislators that we care. We hope to see you all there — and bring a neighbor!

Thanks again for your ongoing support.

2014 To Be a Crucial Year for Airport Noise and RNAV

The past few months have been a busy time for  neighbors challenging plans for increased airplane noise throughout our neighborhoods. The prospect of the implementation of RNAV (Area Navigation) technology at MSP sometime in 2014 made this a hot topic in the November elections. All of our city council members and our new mayor Betsy Hodges committed to continuing the efforts to prevent more airport noise and air pollution from the implementation of RNAV.  Efforts are now underway between these local representatives and residents to develop action plans on this issue.

At the state level, State Representative Frank Hornstein has crafted legislation for this upcoming session that will address the potential impact of airport expansion on our neighborhoods.  Co-sponsored by Representatives Hornstein, Wagenius, Davnie, and Rosenthal, the bill would require an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) for changes made to MSP as part of an airport expansion project, “MSP 2020.”  These changes are in preparation for an estimated increase of 20% more air traffic by 2020. “We need a full environmental study, by an independent agency, before we can fully understand the impact of  these changes to our neighborhoods, parks, and schools,” says Steve Kittleson of MSP FairSkies Coalition. 

While local and state support is important, RNAV is part of federal legislation  and community organizers are continuing to focus their efforts at the federal level. Several grassroots neighborhood organizations similar to MSP FairSkies have been created throughout the country to challenge RNAV. Kittleson adds, “We are working together with groups in New York, New Jersey, and California to make changes at a federal level. We are looking to protect neighborhoods, parks, and schools not just here, but in other cities that are also facing the same noise problems.” 

The MSP FairSkies Coalition could use your support. If you are interested in learning more about this issue, volunteering, signing the petition, or purchasing a lawn sign, please visit www.mspfairskies.org.
