Agreement reached in new runway construction
DANIA BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Dania Beach residents and Fort Lauderdale's main airport, who have had a long-standing feud, may have possibly come to an agreement.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, a tentative agreement has been reached to compensate homeowners adjacent to a new runway being built on the property's south side.
That settlement reportedly includes paying to sound proof their homes. The agreement would also offer compensation to make up for the loss in property value, should owners decide to sell.
Any agreement must be approved by both the county and the FAA.
