COOLIDGE — City officials believe Coolidge is ready to take off, but does that mean the airport is ready to follow suit?
With steady growth in Coolidge, both in terms of new housing and opportunities like the Nikola truck plant, the city is hoping it can use growth at the airport as an economic driver.
The city is partnering with the consulting firm Kimley-Horn to create a new master plan, which will guide the next 20 years of development at the airport. During a special City Council session on April 26, Project Manager Colin Wheeler gave a preliminary report on what the new master plan, and a more graphical Airport Layout Plan, would entail.
