Rep. Scott Peters Again Calls on FAA to Hear Residents’ Concerns, Keep LOWMA Waypoint

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) continued his advocacy on behalf of concerned residents in Point Loma and Ocean Beach by sending another letter to the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Michael Huerta. The letter restated Peters’ opposition to the proposed removal of the LOWMA waypoint for eastbound departures from San Diego International Airport and called on the FAA to do a much better and faster job of responding to the very real concerns of residents within and around the flight path.

Congressman Peters’ letter can be read HERE.

In the last few months, Congressman Peters has heard from hundreds of concerned constituents and he previously sent the FAA Administrator a letter outlining his initial concerns. Members of Rep. Peters’ staff have met with the FAA and were in attendance at last month’s community forum in Liberty Station as well as at the San Diego Airport Authority’s recent Noise Advisory Council meeting.
