Re: “Air Show Noise Sets Off Some Burlington Residents

People against everything are allowed to be heard thanks to those planes. I grew up in Plattsburgh and miss the sound of freedom. Send em over here!

Re: “Can a New Aerospace Company Relaunch Plattsburgh?

Lifelong Plattsburgh resident here. Extreme kudos to the existing businesses in downtown Plattsburgh that have survived despite it's ugly appearance. It's truly ugly. Placing the sewage treatment plant at the mouth of the Saranac River some years ago was probably not the best idea. Prime Lake Champlain frontage and a magnificent view of the Greens. Going forward, it's imperative that a mixed housing plan be developed and implemented for downtown. People spend money WHERE THEY LIVE and have easy access. Have them come, then build it. You'll have a viable idea of what businesses and services are needed and in demand. There won't then necessarily be 32 restaurants with 25 of them failing. The D&H property is ideal for multi-income housing. Don't take the $10M and build a proposed parking garage until you're certain there's a need. Don't build additional retail space when there's a 3 story, relatively new, nearly empty building on site.

Regarding Norsk... phenomenal get! There will however be a qualified labor shortage with all the other transportation manufacturers already feeling the squeeze. The CCC construction and project is perfect and needed beyond belief. Rinse, repeat. Mega congratulations for those involved in bringing the idea to fruition.

Reality TV. Minus the reality.
