Massport is planning a massive hangar build-out for private jets at Hanscom Field (NOT at
Hanscom Air Force Base), representing the largest single development in Hanscom’s history. If
carried out, these plans will dramatically increase greenhouse gas emissions and undermine
municipal, state, and national climate goals at a time when climate scientists are urging us to
accelerate these goals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The speakers will present information on the proposed expansion and its impact on our climate and
our community.

After hearing from the speakers, there may be opportunity for questions.
RSVP to attend in person or by Zoom:
