Community asks FAA to prohibit multifamily enhancement

Neighboring assets owners are inquiring the Federal Aviation Administration to prevent the proposed building of multifamily homes on Erie airport-owned residence alongside Wilkins Highway in Millcreek.

The proposed progress is not compatible with FAA pointers for the land, neighbors explained in a Thursday email to Susan McDonald, environmental specialist for the agency’s Eastern Region business in Jamaica, New York. The email was signed by Annette Mossburg on behalf of the community and was shared with the Erie Times-News.

This is a satellite image of Wilkins Road in Millcreek Township. A local development company has requested and received a zoning change needed to build a multi-family development along the east side of Wilkins Road south of Edward Street, roughly marked in red here.

Her e mail to the FAA adopted Tuesday’s vote by Millcreek Township supervisors to rezone the 20-acre property on the east aspect of Wilkins Road for substantial-density residential growth.

The rezoning was requested by NLA IV True Estate Holdings, which has an option to purchase the property for $400,000 and plans to construct one-tale duplexes and townhomes on the assets.
