In addition to attracting aviation industries to the new development, airport officials also envision non-aviation partners operating at one of several developable tracts on the 520-acre airport property. One alternative included in the airport’s 2016 master plan features a hotel, anchor store, multi-purpose stores, and six outparcels all on a 44-acre tract that fronts U.S. Highway 92.
Airport officials expressed an interest in joining with local education partners to construct an aviation education or training facility.
The development plan is expected to take six months to complete.
