Vote set on replacing 90-year-old Claremont airport hangar
CLAREMONT (AP) — Officials plan to vote on whether to accept and spend about $365,000 in grant money to replace a 90-year-old wooden aircraft hangar at Claremont Municipal Airport.
The Eagle Times in Claremont reports the city plans to vote next week on whether to approve the project, which is part of a decade-long master plan of airport updates.
Plans call for starting construction in September. Fire officials say the new hangar would have the same 60-by-80-foot dimensions. It would be located east of the taxi way and closer to the airport runway and other hangars.
The building would be able to hold up to six small aircrafts.
Officials say the hangar project should take several months.
The airport conducts about 500 operations a year and provides aircraft services and fuel.
