The Pitt- Greenville Airport has big plans for a runway extension, but it could have a serious effect on the residents living nearby.
PGV officials held a public meeting Thursday, explaining that it is required by the Federal Aviation Administration to extend the runway for safety purposes when planes are landing. The airport says depending on where a home is, the F.A.A. Will provide funds to help those people move away if the noise and air pollution is too unbearable. Brenday Tyson-Durumba has family and friends that live nearby, and says it's already difficult with the runway as is.
"They sound like they're closer in landing when you're over there. It shakes. They were talking about that this morning. It shakes.If you have glassware on the table, eventually it's going to fall off and break.
Another public meeting will be held next Thursday on the issue.
