Response from Lorie Zapf

District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf has responded with a letter to the FAA detailing her concerns.

“I oppose removal of LOWMA Waypoint, as many of my constituents have expressed,” she wrote. “I am concerned that the permanent removal of the waypoint may only increase levels of visual and noise disturbance for many residents in OB and Point Loma.

“This proposed waypoint change may attribute to an increase of the ‘early turn’ of commercial jet liners that we as a community and airport have worked so hard to protect against… I am optimistic that we can have an efficient flight path that honors precedence and does not sacrifice the quality of life for my constituents.”
