Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Sees Fresh Legal Action

Locals Push for Renewed Easement, Ban on Leaded Fuels Sensing blood in the water, legal sharks near the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport have filed suit looking to restrict airport activity near their communities. The public-use airport was established in 1960 near Broomfield, Colorado, and is now the closest port to downtown Denver. Like so many airports before it, the area has been subsumed by a never-ending quantity of urban sprawl building up around it, only to find itself the focus of its new neighbor’s displeasure. It sports a set of parallel, paved runways, 9,000 and 7,000 feet respectively, as well as a smaller 3,600-ft crosswind runway. Its location continues to be a popular stop for larger jets, business travelers, and firefighters working to the west of the field.
