(April 26, 2003) -- An April 25 memo from Acting City Manager Gerald Miller to the Mayor and City Council, obtained by LBReport.com, regarding an airport business' proposal to store 200,000 gallons of jet fuel in four above-ground 50,000 gallon tanks at LB Airport (west of Lakewood Blvd. near Runway 25R) says if some current outstanding fire code issues are met, "there is no specific requirement that would prohibit the installation and operation of this use" and if six items required by Fire Prevention are met "the project would meet all applicable safety standards."
Mr. Miller's memo adds, "The proposed project is consistent with the underlying land use/zoning and with MillionAir's lease." (The entity proposing the above-ground fuel tanks is comprised of MillionAir and Air BP.)
