10,000 Hawks is an empowered group of neighbors, professionals, and organizational allies who collaborate on research, action, and education to address public health and ecological issues in support of the Land and all future generations. We envision that all Southern CT communities enjoy a healthy environment that leads to a high quality of life, teeming with (bio)diversity. 

Right now, the biggest impact on our lives is the proposed expansion of Tweed-New Haven Airport (“HVN”). Go to our Get the Facts page to review primary documents and to News for news articles. 

Read Save the Sound’s letter to the FAA on the issues with the proposed expansion.

Here are the bare bones of our concerns with the 5-year Master Plan: 

  • 6 gates and a new terminal on the East Haven side of the airport
  • Capacity for 480 people taking a flight an hour, via 15-16 flights a day
  • +3,000 cars a day. 
  • East Haven and New Haven home values will drop, and long-time residents may leave
  • Contains a recommendation that the main runway should be extended to 7,600′ within the next 20 years (outside of the current fence line).

Additionally, the 43-year lease agreement contains language that supports eminent domain procedures and cargo flight approval processes.
