Events & Calendar / Teterboro Meeting

[The following was sent to me for posting]

RE: AIRPLANES FLIGHTS OVER PROSPECT AVENUE INTO TETERBORO AIRPORT

A meeting has been scheduled where residents can express their concerns to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) about the numerous flights over our area.  Residents are primarily concerned about the safety of such flights over this densely populated neighborhood, as well as the noise and pollution. More recently, there have been few flights because of temperature, season, etc., but you only have to remember what it was like last summer.
The meeting is set for Wednesday, April 26, at 7:00 PM, 90 Moonachie Avenue (not Street), Airport Administration Building, Teterboro, in the conference room.  Parking is available at the site. 

The Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board has been in contact with various government agencies to have planes rerouted. This request for your attendance is being made to residents of all buildings in the area through the Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board. Only with a large turnout can we hope to garner the needed attention to have the FAA reconsider their actions.

The FAA had conducted a trial where planes would be sent over Route 17, rather than over our area.  However, at the completion of the trial period, they found there was “not sufficient usage” to justify it becoming permanent.  In the opinion of the Hackensack Condo/Co-op Advisory Board, the test should have ensured that sufficient traffic flew over Route 17, so that a proper evaluation could have been made.

PLEASE GATHER YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND ATTEND THIS MEETING.

This meeting is being held by TANAAC (Teterboro Noise Abatement Advisory Committee).

Photography...........the way I see it (Moderated by BLeafe) / The Fun Bus!
« Last post by BLeafe on March 26, 2017, 01:30:16 PM »
Late Friday afternoon, I saw that there were EMERGENCY NO PARKING  SAT. 7AM-3PM signs posted on every meter for all 28 spaces along the southern border of the E municipal parking lot. What could possibly be going on to occupy all those spaces on a Saturday? In my nearly 3 decades here, I've never seen anything that did that.

As of 9 or 10am Saturday, I still didn't.

A little after 10:30, a green school bus..............sorry, "fun bus"...........pulls up and horizontally occupies 4 spaces behind the First Presbyterian Church. Five or six more of these buses could have occupied the rest of the allotted space, but that was it - the one, fun bus.

The driver got out and unloaded a landing mat and a plastic slide that stretched from the bus' bumper alllllll the way down to the ground. What thrills! Around the slide were traffic cones and what appeared to be a folding plastic fence, in case one of the children overslid the runway. He later added a small basketball net that I never saw get used and a trampoline that remained on its side throughout.

Every time I walked by my window, I looked out to see what was going on and saw nothing except for two occasions when a boy had just safely landed from the slide to the delight of his mother and two little girls who also used the slide. At that point, the man packed everything up and left. It was 1pm.

I'm hoping that a lot more went on that I didn't see and that whoever paid for everything got their money's worth, but you have to wonder when one bus occupies 28 spaces that were reserved for eight hours and leaves after two-and-a-half.

Oh well. I'm sure a fun time was had by all - however many that was.

Wanna get in on the fun? The last picture hooks you up if you're looking for a fun job.


CLICKit!
