VOTER APPROVAL REQUIRED BEFORE CITY CAN REDEVELOP AIRPORT LAND
The following shall be added to Article VI of the Santa Monica City Charter:
- 640. People’s Right to Vote.
- (a) Voter approval shall be required before any City decision becomes effective that changes the use of land currently used for the Santa Monica Municipal Airport and related aviation services to non-aviation purposes, or that closes or partially closes Santa Monica Municipal Airport. The term “voter approval” means a majority of the voters of the City voting “yes” on a ballot measure approving such a change at a general municipal election.
- (b) Unless the voters have approved the closure of the airport pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section, and such decision has become effective, the City shall continue to operate the Santa Monica Municipal Airport in a manner that supports its aviation purposes, and shall not impose additional restrictions on providers of aviation support services to tenants and airport users that inhibit the sale of fuel or the full use of aviation facilities.
