Notes from the meeting at the Stead Airport, March 16.

Scott Gordon, Airport Manager lead off by explaining that since 2011 the airport had to be financially self sufficient. In 2014 they selected Dermody Properties to develop a minimum of 1,700 acres in phased development. Dermody leases land from the Airport which continues to own it. To begin the project, 56 acres will be developed. The north end of Moya Blvd. will be the entrance to the new business area. 2 buildings will be built one on either side of Moya just past the entrance. No tenants are identified at this time.

Responding to questions, Mr. Gordon stated:
 • The first 56 acres will not impact the Air Races.
 • A 300 ft buffer around the edge of the airport will lower noise.
 • A height cap on the buildings will be based on FAA rules.
 • Water will be supplied by TMWA.
 • They will be building more hangers west end of the east-west runway.
 • They will no longer be giving out keys to the Silver Knolls Blvd. gate.
 • They are having trouble getting materials. No current construction timeline. Maybe 18 to 24 months.
 • The National Guard complex will be constructing more parking toward the west from the current buildings.
     In addition, an attendee pleaded for considering training for young people: in aviation and mechanics positions, and possibly a flight school.

Scott Gordon, the Stead Airport Manager, will answer your questions. Email him at  His phone is 775-690-3319.
