Councilwoman Banks, BTR Airport to host community meeting on relocation

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Councilwoman Banks and the BTR Airport will host a community meeting for the proposed Plank Rd relocation on Wednesday.

The current location of Plank Road off the end of Runway 13/31 is within the runway's "Runway Safety Area" and "Runway Protection Zone;" both of these areas should be free from any obstruction that could affect the safety of an aircraft should it overrun the runway.  The Airport's Master Plan recommends relocating Plank Road in an effort to comply with the FAA Standards.

'The meeting will be held at the Saintsville Conference and Reception Center located at 8930 Plank Road at 6 p.m.
