A Neighborhood's Future is Up in the Air [268] 

5/21/12: Burlington International Airport has grown in size over the years and this means an increase in noise for the South Burlington residents that live nearby.  Under an FAA relocation program, the airport has bought about 120 homes in the areas surrounding the airport that are within the 65-decibel noise zone.  Demolition permits are pending for 57 of these properties which are being held up by a resident's zoning appeal.

But what happens to the residents who remain in this ever-evolving, partially vacant neighborhood - whether they are eligible for the relocation program or not?

Eva talks to residents and airport representatives about this neighborhood in flux.

Music: Greg Davis, Somnia, "Clouds As Edges"
