Briscoe Field Privatization Officially a No Go
As promised during their June meeting, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners took the steps to take plans to privatize Briscoe Field off the table.
On June 5th, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners voted to reject plans to privatize Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville. They also moved to withdraw the preliminary application to the Federal Aviation Administration pursuant to the FAA’s Airport Privatization Pilot Program.
Gwinnett County announced Friday they received a letter from the FAA dated July 5th confirming that Briscoe Field has been removed from privatization program.
These actions officially end the possibility of privatization and commercialization of Briscoe Field.
What do you think about the airport privatization option now officially being withdrawn. Do you think the decision was the right one for the county? Or do you think Gwinnett missed a golden opportunity?
