After only a day, the Burbank Airport Authority rejected the City Council's scaled-down proposal to expand the airport.
After reviewing the City's proposal to increase the Burbank airport by only 250,000 square-feet while simultaneously imposing a noise-budget and night-time curfew, the Airport Authority countered with an offer of their own. Although acquiescing to many of the city's requests, the airport's plan eliminates the noise-budget and night-time curfew as "unworkable" and also increases the amount of square-footage for the expansion to 275,000, excluding office space. As hard deadlines quickly approach, city officials would not comment on the new proposal.
