Concord Municipal Airport Renovation
The Public Properties Division recently completed a much-needed revitalization to the Concord Municipal Airport. Work started in the early spring and was completed in the summer to include asbestos abatement, electrical upgrades, new furniture for the lobby and pilot's lounge, information technology improvements (including Wi-Fi), new televisions, and miscellaneous furnishings (blinds, wall art, and walk-off mats). Joseph Alosa, a member of the Airport Advisory Committee, matched the City's $20,000 investment for this renovation by donating the labor, materials, and supplies to paint the interior walls, and install new carpet in the lounge areas and tile flooring in the entry foyer. The Concord Municipal Airport was built in 1937 and was due for a light renovation to enhance the quality of the aviation facility and preserve its historical significance to the community.
