Burbank City Council Approves Airport Development Agreement

The Burbank City Council gave its final approval to ordinances that finalize the terms of a development agreement between the city and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. Under the agreement, a 59-acre piece of land that had been proposed as the site for a new terminal will be restricted from all airport related uses for 10 years. Current airport parking on the site will be removed, and the property will remain in a trust for 10 years. There will be no expansion of the current passenger terminal or additional commercial airline gates for seven years. The Airport Authority will vote to consider adopting the same terms on February 7th. Authority President Charles Lombardo said the agreement defused many points of potential conflict between the two agencies, and that cooperation between the two will make long-term decisions about the airport easier.
