COLUMBUS, Ind. – Ryan McCroskey of the architecture and engineering firm, Woolpert, spoke at the Columbus Board of Aviation Commission meeting on Tuesday afternoon. He reported that his firm had resubmitted, on behalf of the airport, a supplemental document to the Federal Aviation Commission proposing a different location for the new control tower.
The previous document was drafted prior to the 2012 construction of new hangars and access roads on the site originally specified.
The airport had already submitted documentation to the FAA demonstrating the need for a tower to replace the current one, which dates back to the 1950s.
McCroskey said a letter of support from Rep. Greg Pence (R-IN) was included with the resubmitted documentation.
New tower construction depends on grant funding from the FAA.
