Westchester County Executive George Latimer says he is looking to create a new "master plan" for the County Airport.
Latimer says he's looking for a fair and balanced way to tackle issues the facility has faced in recent years, including noise complaints, concerns about water well contamination and scrutiny over secret federal flights transporting migrants from the southern border into the area.
The county executive says he plans to hold a series of public hearings to address residents' concerns while also considering the positive impacts the airport has on the county's economy.
Latimer says he's hoping his plan will help shift conversations around the facility to a positive direction.
The county executive says he wants to see the county airport not only hold up to FAA standards, but also the standards of the general public.

The first in a series of public hearings will be held on May 24 at the Pace law school in White Plains.
