Cleveland Municipal Airport gears up for next step in development

Chairwoman Lynn DeVault said Friday the authority wants to hear ideas from everyone with a stake in how the terminal and hangars will be developed.

To that end, a survey is being sent next week to pilots and airplane and hangar owners here and also those based in Chattanooga or elsewhere in the region. It will also be posted on the city website —

“There will have to be a series of meetings and work sessions with pilots and utility companies,’’ said Mark Paslick of PDC Consultants. “Because we are now getting closer to knowing when the airport will be available. We kind of work backwards from that.’’
