The article "Choice of land prompts questions about growth" (Aug. 16) does bring questions to mind. Perhaps the situation has been given more thought than has been publicized.
What civic-minded, economy-oriented group of politicians would want the gateway to Augusta surrounded by a water treatment facility?
Could the takeover of land owned by a prominent Augusta-area family involve political aspirations - keeping in mind the area around the airport is, for the most part, "industrial"?
Daniel Field could be converted to a major airport without too much effort. Never mind the cost; most of the land surrounding Daniel Field is owned by the city already. And remember, Delta's big jets can land and take off there without any renovation.
Oh, I almost forgot! The amount of traffic at Bush Field is at an all-time low at the present time. Wouldn't it make an ideal practice strip for the Navy?
How about that, Burke County?
