During a Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport Authority meeting on Tuesday, the room was full of residents with concerns and questions but they were not allowed to speak during the meeting.
Residents' concerns ranged from the new fire station number 12, which will be located at the airport and serve some of the surrounding area; to new commercial traffic that the airport authority is courting.
The airport entered into an agreement with Propeller Investments on Friday, according to the AJC, to bring in commercial airline service and some aviation-related businesses.
Under the agreement, the airport has been renamed Silver Comet Field.
The company said it is in talks with several commercial carriers and hopes to announce initial passenger service after receiving necessary federal approvals, the AJC reported.

Editor's note: Return to Dallas-Hiram Patch later today for a story featuring Post 2 Commissioner Todd Pownall who says he also has concerns.
