The mayor comes out with more clarification on the evolution of his thinking regarding the Sunroad tower.

Here’s a memo he just sent to the City Council.

It’s a little dense. Here’s a highlight.

As mayor, it’s my job to consider all options that further the goals of our city and its citizens. In the end, I have decided not to formalize, for exclusive use, a circle south approach. I did not want to increase the air traffic over Serra Mesa and I did not want to harm the City’s court case against Sunroad. The status quo will remain in place, meaning that pilots, in adverse weather (defined as Santa Ana winds from the east with low cloud cover that makes a “straight in” landing from the east difficult) conditions will have the option to circle north or south of the field and land from the west to the east.
