Abstract:

An analysis is made of the delays which have recurrently impeded airport development, even in the face of well-documented needs for expanded airport capacity. These delays result from the dissatisfaction of community groups whose interests have been excluded in the planning process, and who therefore take issue with its outcome. Methods of altering the planning and evaluation process to make it more sensitive to community preferences are analyzed. An effective means is noted of planning airport projects which are in the public interest, broadly conceived, and which are both economically efficient and politically feasible.
