Being in airport management, at an airport that's been undergoing renovations, etc for over 14 years, I can tell you that your subject is indeed a very interesting and timely topic, and also a very complex one.
To answer your questions above in detail could cover an entire book.
E-mail me with some more specifics, and I'll see what I can come up with for you.

Try out www.uniqueairport.com. It's the Homepage of the company running ZRH. They are expanding the airport right now at the moment and faced many problems with the locals living around the airport.

You want to see a really difficult airport expansion/revitalisation go to http://www.gtaa.com They have an airport development area which outlines all of the issues that are being addressed by the GTAA, as well as detailed information on the project.
On thing I can tell you is that the LOC/Glide SLope gets all screwed up and is unusable if there are crane operations going on near the ILS antenna. Man that was a big problem for us in the summer...but lots of kool go-around pictures.

Once more, thx for all the information. It shows that all aviation enthousiasts are one big family. It's good to know that at least some people are still kind and friendly, and want to help out people they don't even know.
