Airport to get new terminal, hangar space

Albert Whitted Airport will get a $6.9-million overhaul, including a new terminal and more hangar space.

The City Council unanimously approved the plan Thursday, a week after hearing how the waterfront airport is lagging in its ability to meet the needs of general aviation users. The city will ultimately pay about half the $6.9-million upgrade but will finance its share through a bond offering that will be paid off through landing fees, hangar rentals and other user fees.

The other half of the project will be financed largely through grants from federal transportation agencies.
