Claiborne Gets a New Airport

As mentioned in the page about Claiborne, the city's airfield had reached capacity.  A site for a larger airport had been proposed in the South Side Industrial District.  There had been opposition for the site, mainly from the industrial businesses that would be affected and from some residents near the proposed site.  But after a couple years of wrangling, construction of the new airport is on.

As shown above, part of the South Side Industrial District has been cleared.  An entire block of commercial businesses, including a Publix supermarket, also had to be cleared to make way for the new airport.  A picture of the site before the demolition is in the first Claiborne page.

Shortly after the new airport's site was cleared, the old airfield was torn down.  Its site has been rezoned for the industrial businesses displaced by the new airport.  The businesses should fit in since the old airport was by an existing industrial park and the Claiborne Research Institute, in center of picture.

Soon afterward, new high-tech industrial businesses appeared.  This has benefitted Claiborne's air, because a good part of the businesses demolished at the new airport's site were dirty industry.  These businesses also benefit from being close to mass transit.

Above is the new Claiborne Municipal Airport.

The entire city has benefitted from the new airport.  A new round of growth is giving neighborhoods an urban look as townhouses and apartments are constructed.

That bot is a result of the GLR stop cutting off road access from the lot.  The streetcar line was laid down when this neighborhood still had low density zoning.

This concludes this entry to the Fairview CJ.
