    Our Website History

    This web site started as a means for opposing the SA Airport's FAR 150 update proposal that suggested that heavy air traffic be re-directed 15 degrees to fly "over the Cement Plant".     The only problem with that solution is that WE are on the other side of that Cement Plant. Although the FAA rejected that plan in 2001, in March of 2004 the Northern Hills Homeowner's Association had learned that the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) proposed the Airport still included the 15 degree turn. In February of 2005, we were notified that were successful getting the 15 degree turn removed from the EIS.

    All residents are strongly encouraged to join NHHA.
