Has anyone heard about the FAA moving forward to expand the airport that is owned by the Elliotts to a commercial regional airport? Is this public informtion that we can get our hands on before they railroad us (again)? I live out hwy 53 and commute to work past that land everyday, when will this stop?

How long have you lived out 53? You do know that that airport has been there for over 20 years, right?

On hearing anything, no. But as much as people like to talk about the Elliotts, it is probably that same rumor mill that is always churning.

If you are that concerned, why don't you just drive yourself over there, knock on the doors since you go past it everyday and ask?

If you want to know what can happen at these local yokel airports, check out what has happened at the airport in Blairsville. Don't Bill live over there? Whole neighborhood got moved out. Uncle Sam footed the cost. Ain't like your common everyday citizen has a jet. But that same citizen is the one that pays the bill. Better keep an eye on your local developement authority. They'll slip it in on you, and tell you it's for the good of the community. Truth is for the good of a few priviliged members of the community. The ones who want a larger airport so they can land larger planes. At taxpayer expense.

Apparently you really don't know. Bill Elliott has not lived in Blairsville for over 3 years & there was no "whole neighborhood" around that airport. Also, the same homes are still there & alot of the same people still live close. So, keep on doing what you do. ;) Make up a few more things, maybe someone will believe one of them eventually.

Sounds like your on the Aiport Authority board. Has UPS built a hub there since the expansion? Your probably one of those people that complains about taxes, then has a hand out for "free money".

When does the grounbreaking begin? I'm having my Learjet serviced. You taxpayers need to get this project moving. I have the right to land my jet close to home. Just think of all the good that will come out of that for the community.
yup

The FAA's has only rated Elliott's as a private airstrip (limited to 10 flight events a day). That is nothing like a public airport, which has nearly no limits at all in terms of volume, per federal law, and certainly nothing like a Regional Airport, which accommodates commercial airlines, both passenger, and cargo.

Twinstar, I live in the area and have for more than 20 years. When I bought here, the Elliott "airport" was a grass landing strip. "INs" with the local government allowed them to do what few others would have been allowed to do.
Further, did you read the airport bill of 2011...oh my, the power granted to the few so the Elliotts could again profit while screwing the residents who lived around them.
There are literally hundreds of homes and farms around Elliott Field, not just a few scattered homes.
This year, 2012, since Elliott sold his land to a "developer" (ha ha) and the Motorsports Park went up (such as it is) and the City tried to pull the Airport Bill coup (for a regional airport!), my home valuation went down 40K.
My ex-state representative Chip Pearson fared a lot worse, his valuation on some of his property was cut 50%!!!(think about that one for a while, won't you?)

I thought I did my homework, but the "leaders" of the City and County sure showed me one thing, if there is an influential family and a few wannabe developers and graders who have an 'in' with the local and State government, God help any homeowner.

They will lose their rights to a quality of life when they put the key in the lock.
Comprehensive land use plans, paid for by the taxpayers, be damned! They're not worth the Charmin you wipe with.

Now Twinstar, go shill for the Elliotts elsewhere, you're not telling the truth here.

Why do you think that can't change?
Here is how the airport is listed:
http://www.airport-data.com/airport/30GA/
It's wrong, however, since the airport is 5500 paved feet.
Check it out with PTD airport.
In 2011, Elliott had a permit "in hand" for expansion.
House Bill 453 was a precursor to the plans of making a regional airport a reality, and if you read the writing in this bill, if you were a resident, it would make you shudder. The State power that would have been granted to the likes of Cox and his crew of greedy ignoramouses was astounding.
Keep pumping out the smoke...or...bother with saying something relevant.
