Public meeting in Masset on new air terminal

  • Jul. 27, 2011 8:00 p.m.

The village of Masset plans to hold a public meeting next month to share its plans to build a new terminal at the airport. Mayor Barry Pages said details about the project budget will be shared with the public, as well as the preliminary design for the building. The meeting will likely be held in mid-August. The village has received some grants for the airport terminal, and will be applying for more. On Monday night (July 25), council voted to apply to the Coast Sustainability Trust for $150,000 and to apply for a zero-interest loan from Masset’s share of Northern Development Initiative funds for up to $400,000. The zero-interest loan would allow the village to avoid putting reserve funds towards the terminal, Mr. Pages said, and could be paid back through airport user fees. The village does not have to wait for these applications to be approved before it starts work on the new terminal, said administrator Trevor Jarvis, because it does have enough money assembled to go ahead.
