Burlington Airport Announces Plans to Add Parking

first_img$45 million project would add two floors and 1,400 spaces without taxpayer costAt a press conference on Wednesday, February 11, 2009, Brian Searles, Director of Aviation at Burlington International Airport, unveiled plans for a major expansion to the airport s parking facilities. The need for additional parking at the airport has become acute, said Searles. Enplanements for Calendar Year 2008 were up 7.3% over 2007. In 2008, the existing garage was filled to capacity at least once nearly every day from February through October. Searles added that when the primary lot is full, vehicles must be moved to the Park & Shuttle location, or even to off-site temporary lots. The result is inconvenience to customers and lost revenue.To be completed in phases, the new project would ultimately add two floors and 1,400 parking spaces. The addition will also incorporate a variety of creative energy-efficiency features. The phases are scalable, depending on economic conditions. The full build-out cost for the project is estimated to be $45 million. To pay for the construction, the airport is asking Burlington to seek voter approval in March for a Revenue Supported General Obligation Bond.Searles added, It is critical to understand that this project will not result in any increase in Burlington area residents taxes. I can t stress that strongly enough. The project will produce sufficient revenue increase to repay the bond without raising taxes. Searles also noted that voter approval does not commit the city to actual sale of the bonds, nor to spending at any particular level.Source: Burlington International Airportlast_img read more

Beware of another collapse, Guardiola warns Man City stars

first_img “We know it. We spoke about it many times, not this week but the last years, many times. If we want to make a step forward as a team to be close to winning this competition, we have to be better in this area.” Interestingly, if Man City progress, Guardiola will become the first manager to defeat Zinedine Zidane in a European knockout tie after the Los Blancos boss masterminded a run of three Champions League triumphs from 2015-16 to 2017-18. “When you think that you’ve got one of his tactical plans covered, he’ll hit you with another tactical plan or revert to the original one that you thought he was going to start with,” Guardiola noted. “In the dim and distant past, we played the first leg and what we can remember from the first leg we’ve put to good use. “We spoke about that game and since then we’ve watched all Madrid’s games since La Liga restarted. “We’ve spoken about how we think Madrid might approach this game. But what we’ve done more in these past two weeks is talked about what we can do – how we can hurt Madrid and areas we can cause problems for them.” Guardiola’s preparations for the game have been thrown partially into flux by the news that teenage centre-back Eric Garcia has declined a new contract at City. Garcia established himself as the first-choice partner for Aymeric Laporte over recent weeks but has been heavily linked with a return to his boyhood club Barcelona. At the other end of the field, Sergio Aguero remains sidelined having undergone meniscus surgery, but Guardiola is not ruling out having City’s all-time record scorer back for the final stages, should they survive Real Madrid test. Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City squad members they must be at their best as they prepare to tackle Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium tonight. Guardiola has claimed all domestic honours since joining City in 2016, with this season’s EFL Cup the sixth major silverware of his reign.

I spoke with the doctors and everything is like we thought. “Hopefully he can come back and start training with us, but I don’t know.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 “But most of them were goals we could have avoided. We have to avoid it. Making mistakes in this competition punishes you a lot.center_img The Spaniard has been unable to end his club’s wait for a maiden Champions League title, however, with Tottenham and Liverpool ending their compatriots’ involvement at the quarter-final stage in the past two seasons. Man City hold a 2-1 advantage over Madrid heading into the second leg of their last-16 tie today, with a place at the concluding mini-tournament in Lisbon up for grabs. However, their 3-0 bashing at Anfield in 2018, with all of Liverpool’s goals coming within the space of 19 first-half minutes, serves as a cautionary tale, as well as conceding cheap against Monaco – in 2017 – and Tottenham when departing on away goals on those occasions. “Yeah definitely,” Guardiola told a news conference when asked whether it was a concern. “More than conceding a goal is the way we concede a goal. “When they are brilliant and make a good action, we have to accept it.
