Council to vote on master plan for Majors Field (KGVT)

Kathryn's Report:

The Greenville City Council may vote Tuesday on a proposal which is expected to result in the relocation of several buildings at Majors Field, the City of Greenville Municipal Airport.

The council is scheduled to consider the approval of a master plan for redeveloping the airport, with the vote included under Tuesday’s regular session agenda, which starts at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is also set at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The plan was the focus of public meetings in February and May.

The redevelopment is being prompted in part by the expected expansion of L-3 Mission Integration, the airport’s largest tenant, although there is no proposed timetable for the  expansion currently.

Upon the council’s vote to adopt the plan, it would be forwarded to the TxDOT Aviation Division and the FAA for final approval, with the final designs for the project expected to take another six or nine months to complete.

An engineering phase as well as the construction phase will follow after TxDOT Aviation and FAA approve the plan.

The proposal would be accomplished in phases, to accommodate the intention by L-3 Mission Integration to expand into 114 more acres on the airport grounds, including 55 acres where the seven buildings which include the T-hangars and the home of the Air-Evac Lifeteam air ambulance service are currently situated.

The number of hangars would also increase from the current two dozen to an expected 54 hangars.
