Poll: What Should Happen to the Essex Skypark (W48)??

The county has expressed plans of forcing the 70-year-old airport to move in order to plant trees and address environmental issues. 

Vince Gardina, director of the county’s department of environmental protection and sustainability, said the county wants to clear the 40 acres of the skypark in order to plant trees, improve water quality along Back River, replace forests destroyed by other development in the county and help to mitigate other pollution issues along the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

But, members of the Essex Skypark said the airport is an Essex institution that does not negatively impact the environment and is something that the local residents want to remain in their community.
