HOT OFF THE PRESS! The new Southwest taxiway expansion project is complete! Five taxiways are now complete that can accommodate new hangar rows. The airport is now in negotiations with the developer to build brand new hangars in this area. It’s anticipated that the first hangar will break ground this summer, 2011. If would like more information about this new hangar project, please contact Shane Ellis at (661) 834-6870 or email@example.com.
North Commercial Area: Again, with the help of the Street Maintenance crews, we were able to do some new paving and some pavement reconstruction of various problem areas. The vacant fire lanes between the Hangar “A” and “B” rows have been paved which will prevent dust and weeds reducing maintenance costs. Also, a portion of the vehicle access road was reconstructed where there had been large potholes and pavement failure.
Union Avenue Entrance: The next phase of the landscaping project should bid May, 2011 with construction anticipated to start in the summer. This will complete the Union Avenue beautification process and make the entrance much more attractive.
EAA Hangar: A complete reconstruction of the EAA meeting room was necessary once the remodeling project got started winter 2010. Once the work got started, it was discovered that the old walls had dry rot, the floor wasn’t level, and many fixtures weren’t salvageable. The good news is since City Plant Maintenance crews are doing the work it will be completed within budget! Expected completion summer 2011.
