City of Memphis Launches Aerotropolis Website

Posted by Bianca Phillips on Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 4:12 PM

A website with updates on the city's plan for revamping the airport area is now online. Memphisaeroplan.com provides an overview of the aerotropolis plan, which is now being billed as Memphis Airport City.

The plan is currently being developed with input from community leaders and business owners in the study area, and it's funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the city of Memphis Division of Planning and Development through grants. The plan will focus on market strategy, land use, and urban design, as well as opportunities for new housing and businesses in the area.

The public can get a better idea of the scope of the plan with graphics, maps, and aerial photographs of the site area, all available on the new website.

“We are still gathering public input,” said Chad Bowman, Aerotropolis Project Manager. “So if anyone is interested in learning more about the project or providing input through their group or organization, please feel free to contact me, and I will make myself available.”

Until the stranglehold the Memphis Shelby County Airport Authority has allowed Delta to hold over the business and leisure travelers to- and from- Memphis is removed, the very idea of an "Aerotropolis" developing in Memphis is a ludicrous and wastefully expensive conceit.
