Talks have started about possibly moving a small airport from a growing suburban area south of Indianapolis.
Greenwood Municipal Airport started out as a landing strip among cornfields in the 1940s but now is surrounded by homes and
business just west of Interstate 65. The proposal being developed would have a new airport built in a rural area east of I-65,
with the current 230-acre site opening up for commercial development.
Mayor Charles Henderson tells the Daily
Journal of Franklin that a new airport would be able to handle more flights and relieve concerns about so many planes
flying low in a populated area.
Henderson says a study of future airport use has just started and that it could
take years to obtain needed federal approval.
