At the June 28, 2016 Public Workshop #7, the RDU Airport’s land use plan was unveiled. This plan slates several forested areas for commercial development. This development would result in the destruction of irreplaceable, centrally-located forested recreation areas and in the destruction of an important green buffer space between the airport facilities and the very popular Umstead State Park. Ultimately, the destruction of this forested area could negatively affect the hundreds of acres within the Crabtree Creek watershed.
We have created a petition to call attention to this and to let our local government (Wake County) and RDU Airport know that thousands of citizens in the Triangle and in North Carolina want to preserve these forested areas.
Please sign our petition and bring your voice to the table!
