Coulter Field manager James Brown spoke with WTAW’s Scott DeLucia about future plans for the airport and the business plan being created to guide that development. Part of the business plan will include branding, airport market analysis, surveys and website enhancements.
Infrastructure upgrades last year included an Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) which provides real time weather conditions for pilots and community observers. Planned projects were divided into three phases, one design and two build, and comprise nearly $2.4 million through the end of 2016.
Brown said the airport needs create a space for developers to be comfortable when they visit, and that doing so makes them apt to come back. “[Coulter Field is] a gateway to the Brazos Valley, and that’s what we need to treat it as” he said.
