Gibraltar to Set Date for Airport Land Purchase

The Town of Gibraltar will schedule a special meeting to approve the purchase of a 20-acre land parcel near the Ephraim/ Gibraltar Airport at its board meeting Wednesday, July 6. Town Clerk Beth Hagen said public meetings regarding the purchase have already been held, but a special meeting is needed to gain final approval. The parcel sits at the southwest end of the airport at the end of the grass runway. Hagen said the town decided to purchase the land for safety reasons.

“It’s a safety issue, that way they can have more of a safe area without a home or something else causing an obstruction,” she said.
