Worcester BZA agrees on fence change at airport
(April 21, 2017) Once again taking up a project that was abandoned in 2014, Ocean City Airport Manager Jamie Giandomenico was granted a special exception to increase the height of a fence at the airport almost a mile southeast of Route 611 last Thursday.
Board attorney David Gaskill advised the panel that as long as there were no substantive changes to the project since the previous exception was granted three years ago, the board was obliged to once again approve the exception.
Giandomenico affirmed there were no changes from the previous request.
Gaskill said a special exception expires after a year of inactivity.
Giandomenico, airport manager since 2011, said increasing the height of the fence was tied to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Comprehensive Environmental Assessment, which had been delayed up until now, for undisclosed reasons.
