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 />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 />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 />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 />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 />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 />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 />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. Warwick in Manchester ~iagisterial District, near StOp 12~ on the
<br />Petersburg Pike, be and it is hereby granted by the Board of Supervisors of Chester-
<br />field County.
<br />On this matter Mr. J. G. Hening and ~. H. T. Goyne voted "No" and asked that their
<br />votes be so recorded.
<br />at a previous meeting of the Board of Supervisors there was presented an applicatio~
<br />from the Wright Lumber Company, requesting the Board not to accept for public use
<br />a road dedicated from the Belt Boulevard in Manchester District, to the Atlantic
