Improvements over the next five years could transform the Preston Airport into a magnet that will draw business to the area. But that will only happen if the city, county and airport board work together in a collaborative effort.
The airport can become a vital link in a chain that will help the entire community thrive, according to John Kezele, chair of the Preston Airport Board. He told the Preston Council Monday the county, city and airport board need to make the improvements happen together.
Kezele said the airport now generates $655,000 in economic impact for the community, which is impressive when compared to other area airports. The Malad airport generates $172,500 in economic benefits for that community. The Bear Lake Airport generates $165,700 and the Downey Airport, $107,800, he said.
