The Burbank City Council and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority will hold a joint meeting March 15, 2012 to receive a report on the results of recent public opinion research regarding Bob Hope Airport. The meeting will convene at 5:00 p.m. in the City of Burbank Community Services Building, 150 N. Third Street, Burbank, CA 91502. Members of the public are invited to attend.
The public opinion research – directed by the Airport Land Use Working Group, composed of staffs of the City and Airport, and conducted over the past three months by the firm of Goodwin Simon Strategic Research – was the first step in a joint effort by the City and the Authority to engage in a comprehensive public outreach and participation process for the purpose of obtaining community input and facilitating consensus-based planning for the future of the Airport.
The research was intended to scientifically establish current public sentiment among the community and other affected parties about the Airport. Goodwin Simon conducted a telephone survey in February of just over 1100 registered voters – more than half of them in Burbank, and others in Glendale, Pasadena, and areas of Los Angeles near the airport.
