Mr. Crosby also updated the Authority members in regard to recent City Council actions associated with cellular tower proposals in close proximity to the Airport off of Dividend Drive which impact Falcon Field's Part 77 imaginary surfaces potentially affecting navigable airspace. The City Council will re-review this item at its second meeting in January 2007, and have been invited to meet with the Authority to discuss these and other issues in more detail. Mr. Crosby is working with representatives from Coweta County for potential adoption of a height and zoning ordinance similar to the City's version for future development in the county. Mr. Crosby stated that the Georgia Airports Association current president, Mike Van Wie, has an organizational agenda that is focused on Aviation Sales Tax.

Mr. Crosby advised the Authority that the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) has met with the City Manager to discuss the TDK expansion project and is suggesting that traffic counts show a need to expand TDK to four lanes. GRTA has inquired about the use of eminent domain to obtain the right-of-way that would be needed for this proposed expansion. Mr. Crosby spoke with the FAA regarding this issue and it was determined that the City could not use eminent domain to acquire federally sponsored property, and that the FAA would not consent to a land release that would adversely affect the protection of the runway. Mr. Warner also indicated that a reverse condemnation would be possible albeit not currently necessary to further prevent any action of this kind. IV.
