The concern that PHX and airport officials tried bringing up was the noise being of concern for the residential component. But I don't think 30' is going to be much of a difference in jet noise.
Are they concerned more about the 737-800 that fly out today - or the larger 777 and Airbus international flights they want to attract tomorrow with the new 'west terminal' that's planned?
mmmm skyscraper, I love you....
