Woodbine applies for $800,000 grants aimed at Woodbine Municipal Airport (KOBI), New Jersey

WOODBINE – The borough has applied for more than $800,000 in state and federal grants for capital improvement projects at the Woodbine Municipal Airport, an official said recently.

Mayor William Pikolycky said Tuesday that is seeking about $427,000 from the Federal Aviation Administration for three projects: $79,000 for the design and engineering of Taxiway A repair; $273,000 for the removal of obstructions, such as brush and stumps; and $74,000 for the design and permitting of a helicopter parking area.

In addition, the borough has applied for $400,000 from the state Department of Transportation to repair Taxiway A, once design and engineering is completed.

The mayor said his optimistic that the borough will receive the funding.

“What generally happens is that we meet with the FAA on a regular basis,” Pikolycky said. “They have a good feel for what we need, and they encourage us to make applications in the right area.”

The mayor said he expected it would take about three months for the FAA and state DOT to review the grant request.

If approved, Pikolycky said construction would begin shortly after that.
