AUS hosts jet fuel farm meet

Wednesday, January 12, 2022 by Tai Moses

Many Austinites who live near the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport aren’t too happy about AUS’ proposal to site a jet fuel storage facility in their neighborhood. In an effort to calm frayed tempers, airport leadership will be hosting a virtual community information meeting and question-and-answer session. The 2040 Master Plan process identified the need for a new airplane fuel facility, to be located on airport property adjacent to U.S. Highway 183. The project is scheduled to begin construction this year and will be owned and operated by the airlines that service AUS. The Federal Aviation Administration gave the go-ahead after approving an environmental review for the facility. Find more information about the project at SpeakUpAustin.org/AUSFuel. The meeting will be on Saturday, Jan. 29, 3-4 p.m., via Zoom.
