FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 21, 2017
Citizens for a Livable Boise (CLB) agrees with the United States Airforce's F35 Air National Guards' Site Selections decision announced today.
For over two years, thousands of Boise Citizens have voiced concerns about the potential, negative environmental and economic impacts basing F 35 aircraft at Gowen Field might have. Hundreds of residents have not only expressed their concerns to public officials (Boise City, State of Idaho and Federal Offices) but also have asked pertinent questions with limited responses.
Based on the best information attainable for the F 35 site selection decision, Citizens for a Livable Boise agrees that Gowen Field should be eliminated as a viable choice.
We now need to push for better, more environmentally friendly mission choices, such as cargo planes, transport planes, drones, etc., Cybersecurity is another possible option which the Air Force would like to see more Guard Units involved in could provide valley wide business and educational growth potential.
Good things can come out of being passed over for the F-35, and Citizens for a Livable Boise (CLB) will be there along with continued community involvement to see it happen.
Citizens for a Livable Boise is a grassroots movement that calls for awareness of specific issues which undermine the quality of life and domestic tranquility of our beloved city.
