Thompson to discuss Crescent City Airport
The Eureka (CA) Reporter
U.S. Reps. Mike Thompson (D-St. Helena) and Peter DeFazio (D-Springfield) are meeting Thursday with members of the Del Norte County Airport Advisory Commission to discuss strategies for improving the Crescent City Airport, which serves residents of both Del Norte County and Curry County, Ore. Participants will also discuss the possibility of a two-state airport commission. Thompson helped secure Airport Improvement Program funding for the Crescent City Airport in 2000, allowing the airport’s master plan to be completed and securing funds this year for runway upgrades and construction of a building to house emergency equipment. A new terminal is slated for construction following completion of an environmental assessment and architectural drawings.
