Now writing down SEABA's promises


March 3, 2011

I am one of about a hundred residents of the 26 Mile neighborhood where SEABA recently admitted they are intending to base their heliport operations. As you can imagine, I was deeply concerned to hear the news. Happily, my neighbor, Erica Merklin, informed me of a conversation she had with one of the owners of SEABA. On Feb. 21, he assured her that if it were really the neighborhood’s preference that they not create a heliport on this property, that, of course, they would not do so. Since it seems that some of SEABA’s promises have gotten lost over the years, I thought it would be a good idea to put this one in writing! Now it’s a matter of public record.
