Pierce County discusses Tacoma Narrows Aiport
The following is a press release from Pierce County:
Pierce County will hold its third set of public meetings on Tacoma Narrows Airport’s master plan update on Sept. 4 in Gig Harbor. Topics will include facility requirements and an introduction to potential development alternatives for the airport.
“Requirements for both the airside and landside of the airport will be considered,” said Deb Wallace, Pierce County Public Works and Utilities airport and ferry administrator. “For the landside, that could include the type and number of hangars, terminal facilities, and water system upgrades. For the airside, it could include incorporating new technology, parking apron improvements, and runway configuration. We will also begin to discuss development alternatives. This discussion and evaluation will continue at our next meeting, tentatively scheduled for November.”
The Planning Advisory Committee, made up of representatives from the aviation community, businesses, local and state government and more, will meet from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cottesmore of Life Care Cafe, 2909 14th Ave. NW in Gig Harbor.
