Fascinating juxtaposition…the owners of the Carmel Valley Airport want to close it and divide the acreage for housing. They can’t do it — at least not quickly. Caltrans requires a hearing prior to agreeing to the closure.
It’s sad when small airports close — and Carmel Valley is the smallest of the small. Yet, it’s also amazing how the State of California gets its hands on almost every decision of property owners. Somewhere there’s a better balance to be found!
