Grant & Loan Awards: Baldwin County


Baldwin County

Equity Fund: $353,954

Awarded: 11/07/2007

Applicant: Baldwin County

Equity funds to assist construction of a new 2,500 SF terminal at Baldwin County's Level III airport. The existing 1,280 SF terminal constructed in 1958 is outdated, too small and too close to the runway -- in violation of FAA regulations. The new terminal will have a flight plan room, pilot waiting and training areas and a corporate meeting room. The new terminal will help the County and the large surrounding regional area (Putnam, Hancock, Jones, Washington, Wilkinson) to recruit prospects and encourage greater economic development activity. A number of support letters from area companies stressed the importance of creating a positive first-impression on visitors to the community and region. Over the last five years $2.5 million has been invested ($500K local) in airport infrastructure improvements including installation of AWOS, relocation of powerlines in approach, runway extension, rehabilitation of Apron, Taxiway and runways.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $564,428
