BURBANK (CBSLA.com ) — The future of Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport is on the November ballot.
If Measure B passes, voters would approve plans to for a 14-gate replacement terminal.
Improvements include more seating and amenities, more food options and the baggage carousel would be moved inside. The terminal would also be in a safer spot by being set back the length of two football fields from the runway.
“We’re going from a 14-gate terminal to a 14-gate terminal,” Measure B supporter Linda Walmsley said. ” It’s not going to be more, it’s going to be better.”
Longtime councilman David Gordon says the improvement could make way for Burbank to a become a mini LAX.
“If we don’t have plans in place to offset the impact of noise, traffic, over congestion, then we’re going to have a problem.”
CBS2’s Kristine Lazar takes a further look at the measure.
