So a startup business operates completely within the law, follows safety guidelines to a tee, and respectfully tries to work with the community, but just gets more flak for being "bad growth" -- despite serving the needs of many fellow community members.
Only in Atherton -- where there are few meaningful problems to speak of -- can this happen.

I would be ashamed if Atherton's solution is simply to shift their problem to East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park.
And the more easterly approach would also create a conflict with airplanes arriving and depart Palo Alto airport.
The solution is a Controlled Descent Approach starting from a higher altitude not moving the problem to less vocal and less powerful communities.

The ideal solution would be to close these small airports, recognizing them as the environmental and quality-of-life liabilities that they are.
San Carlos' airport location would make a great wetland.
