Larry Ryan's bags were packed. After 13 years in his whitewashed home on Airport Road, Ryan had decided it was time to move on. Loading his car with furniture, clothing and other possessions on a recent morning, he listed some of his reasons for selling his house and leaving. "The neighborhood has changed," he said. The woods that once stood across from his street were leveled to make room for a motel. There is more traffic exiting off Route 13. And, during the last few years, he said, his once-quiet neighborhood has become a magnet for prostitutes.

Valley Township supervisors have given a green light to a shopping center plan that will bring the first traffic lights to the township. In a 3-1 vote Thursday, the supervisors approved preliminary plans for the Airport Village shopping center. In return, the developer, Hough/Loew Associates of Exton, will give the township a half-acre triangle of land. The land will enable the township to straighten the intersection of Lincoln Highway and Airport Road. The board also amended the zoning ordinance to allow grocery and dairy stores in the center and to cut the number of required parking spaces.

Valley Township will pay $332,000 over the next eight years to tap into the Coatesville water system at three township locations.

The first payment of $23,200 will be due in December. Besides taps on Red Road, Lincoln Highway and Airport Road, and on the eastern end of Highlands Corporate Center, the agreement also calls for a Route 82 tap, with terms yet to be negotiated.

Airport dining fare used to be rubbery hot dogs, stale sandwiches, and greasy fast food. No longer. With the opening of 20 new shops and restaurants in Philadelphia International Airport's busy Terminal F, travelers can now get a shower, a haircut, fancy eye cream and lotions, and they can dine on burritos, gourmet burgers, sushi and noodles, roast Brussels sprouts, duck-fat fries, and grilled salmon. One in six of the airport's 31 million annual passengers starts or ends his or her trip at one of Terminal F's 38 gates.

The West Caln Planning Commission has recommended final approval for a 136- acre, 49-lot industrial park near the Chester County Airport after months of give-and-take between the Lancaster County developer and township officials. Within only 15 minutes at Wednesday's meeting, the commission recommended final approval. All summer, the commission and township supervisors ironed out details of the plan, requesting the widening of Airport Road from the Route 30 Bypass beyond the Highland Corporate Center to South Bonsall Road because of a sharp curve near the end of the industrial park's boundaries.

A $4 million road-widening project in East and West Goshen Townships has been sent back to the drawing board after it received only half the amount of state funding that township officials had expected. "I would say it came as a relative surprise," West Goshen Supervisor Richard Cloud said at a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday. "We didn't think there was going to be a problem. " "If you're dealing with the government, nothing's in the bag until you get a signed contract," East Goshen township manager Louis F. Smith Jr. said in an interview Wednesday.

It will include an outdoor pool and two indoor pools, including one with a kids' water slide. For the child-care facility, there will also be an outdoor playground.

It's a place where planes thunder overhead and trucks spit exhaust along Interstate 95. But a group of local organizers envisions something different along the Delaware River waterfront - joggers, bikers and hikers. As incongruous as it seems, a 20-mile trail loop may soon find a home behind the Philadelphia International Airport and amid the stretches of industrial roads, a spot that organizers say is already used recreationally by locals and hotel guests and can be made safer with the construction of a trail.

Brandywine Airport is cleared for landings - and takeoffs, for that matter. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation relicensed the airport Tuesday, the day before its temporary license was slated to expire. The airport's license was designated as temporary when a consortium of several dozen pilots, organized as the Brandywine Airport Club, purchased the airport in July. There is a string attached to the new license. The airport must correct the problem of proximity to Airport Road within five years, according to a Nov. 18 PennDot letter to the club's president, Bill Moran.

For this most self-conscious of cities, the coming of the Olympics marks the end of one mission and the beginning of another. The first, now completed, was a $9 billion, Olympics-inspired urban face lift, the realization of plans that had piled up on drawing boards for half a century. The second, now beginning, is to make others see Barcelona as it already sees itself, as the quintessential metropolis of the new Europe. Barcelona, the capital of the region known as Catalonia, would much rather be thought of as European than Spanish.

Over the opposition of airport officials, Valley Township supervisors have given the green light for construction of a four-room school building off Airport Road, about one-quarter mile north of Chester County Airport. The permanent structure can be built on the campus of Lanchester Christian School, the Board of Supervisors ruled at a meeting Tuesday night. Lanchester's kindergarten through fifth grade classes have been using modular classrooms at the site since 1987. With the new building, which school officials expect to open in September, sixth through 12th grade students would leave a Coatesville church and join the lower grades at the Valley Township campus.
