The future of the airport has been the subject of disagreement between the city of New Haven and the town of East Haven. New Haven has advocated airport runway expansion, which would be required to attract more commercial air service. However, many East Haven residents are opposed, alleging that expansion would negatively affect the mostly residential neighborhoods surrounding the airport. In 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration and the State of Connecticut approved the proposed addition of safety overruns to Tweed's main runway. The city of New Haven issued the necessary wetlands and building permits for the project. However, officials in the town of East Haven voted to reject the upgrade proposal and deny permits for work on the East Haven side. The Airport Authority is performing the necessary work for the $25 million safety overruns on the New Haven side of the airport.
