The city of Livermore, Calif., is preparing to give up its exclusive fueling operation at Livermore Municipal Airport, having awarded a contract to Livermore Air Center to build a new FBO and hangars at the airport. A local group called Livermore Airport Citizens Group is opposing the move, claiming that the airport is going to become a “jetport” and add noise and pollution to the surrounding community.

Livermore Municipal Airport is one of those facilities where the city that owns the airport keeps the FBO operation to itself. For a potentially important airport such as Livermore, a designated reliever for San Francisco Bay Area airports and located at the edge of some of the busiest airspace in California, this facility is surprisingly undeveloped.
