The airport authority board that oversees the airport plans to develop a formal policy for leasing hangars at the airport. The policy will include assignment clauses, leasing rates, maintenance requirements and renewals as well as detail what happens to building improvements at the end of leases.

The policy will deal with ground hangar leases, not airline leases or so-called “land-side” leases that don’t involve aviation uses.

“The board is committed to developing a policy that is fair to hangar tenants while protecting the public investment in the airport,” said Tom LaCroix, chairman of the authority board.
