Abstract

This case examines the political negotiations which paved the way for the construction of the first major new airport to be built in the United States in the past 20 years. By tracing the course of relations between Denver and its suburban communities as they worked to produce agreements allowing the airport to be built, the case is designed to facilitate discussion of the dynamics of city-suburban negotiations and strategies for forging compromise. The A case describes the negotiations which led to a memorandum of understanding between the affected governments; Part B carries the story through two annexation elections which finally succeeded in freeing the airport site for development.
