Mckinney Airport Blueprint via KERA News

On Monday night, McKinney Mayor George Fuller took questions from the public on the $200 million bond to expand the McKinney National Airport. 

But he’s not the only mayor taking questions as of late.

“I get 50 to 100 calls during the course of a week,” said Fairview Mayor Henry Lessner. “We are the ones impacted by the noise and pollution generated by that airport.”

Fairview is the closest city to the runway. Lessner took WFAA to the gated and retired community of Heritage Ranch, which sits along McKinney National’s flight path. 

Mayor Jim Olk of the city of Lucas is also a vocal opponent to an expansion of the airport. His city sits several miles from the runway and the city of McKinney.
