Join Conversation Café—a consortium of eight Westchester County-based partners for a discussion regarding the proposed changes for Westchester County Airport, and the potential environmental impact of those changes.

Speakers for the program include Peter Scherrer, the Westchester County Airport manager who will outline the proposed changes; Carolyn Cunningham, an environmental lawyer and member of the board of directors of the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County; George Klein, vice chair of Sierra Club Lower Hudson Group and Airport Committee chairman for the Sierra Club; and Ted Anderson, who will discuss the history of the current terminal use agreement (TUA) and the environmental implications of altering the TUA.
