from the airplanes operating from that airport, and that he hoped the Board of <br />Supervisors would permit this airfield to be established as he believed it ~ould be <br />an asset to the surrounding territory. <br /> <br />Mr. Rudolph Tench stated that he owned twelve pieces of property in "Scottdale" and <br />while he did not live in that subdivision, yet he felt that the establishment of <br />the proposed airport would not have any ill effects upon the value of his property. <br /> <br />This view was also held by Mr. ~. P. Oliver, who lives in "Scottdale", and he hoped <br />the Board of Supervisors would grant permission to establish this airport. <br /> <br />Mr. W. M. Miller stated that he had owned a lot on the Petersburg Pike near the site <br />of the proposed airport and had attempted to sell it for the past twelve years but <br />had had no results. The day it was announced that application had been made for the <br />establishment of an airport at this location he had had the first inquiry for the <br />purchase of his lot and he had sold, and since has had at least twenty purchasers <br />for the lot. <br /> <br />Mr. C. A~new Swineford and ~. Jo T. Moore, residents of the area adjacent to the <br />site of the proposed airport, stated that they felt the airport would have no ad- <br />verse results on the property~ in that area. <br /> <br />At this time, Mr. Sowers stated that the E. I. DuPont de Nemours Company had con- <br />tacted him and had raised some objections to the establishment of an airport at thi~ <br />site, whereupon he presented a copy of a letter written to the DuPont Company assur- <br />ing them that their objections would be properly taken care of. Whereupon, Mr. A.K <br />Missimer, from the DuPont Company, stated he was fully satisfied with the assurance <br />given by Mr. Sowers, and that the E. I. DuPont de Nemours Company was withdrawing <br />all objections te the establishment of an airport in this area. <br /> <br />At this time and on motion of Mr. W. A. Horner, it is resolved that the Chairman <br />appoint the entire Board as a committee and that a recess of ten minutes be declare, <br />for the Committee to consider this application. Whereupon the Chairman appointed <br />the entire Board as a Committee and they recessed for ten minutes. <br /> <br />The meeting having reconvened, the Committee reported that it was the opinion that <br />no injustice or injury would be caused to the residents of the surrounding area if <br />an airport should be established at the location proposed by the application from <br />the Sky Service Corporation. Upon consideration whereof, and on motion of ~r. W.A. <br />Homer, it is resolved that the application for the establishment of an airport by <br />the Sky Service Corporation on the property known as "Campfield" being the residence <br />of Miss Caroline.
