NYSDOT Grant Accepted to Support Airport Fuel Farm Relocation

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

The Legislature, without dissent, authorized acceptance of a $1.5 million grant from the New York State Department of Transportation to help finance relocation of the Fuel Farm at Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport.  The grant, awarded under NYSDOT’s AIR99 program, will support relocation of the fuel facility from its current location within the Airport’s general aviation apron area to an area further north on airport property, increasing safety and enabling shared use of the facility by other municipalities, include NYSDOT.  $400,000 from the Airport Fund Balance (revenue from the $840,000 the Airport received from sale of Airport land to NYSDOT for its new residency) also will be applied to the project.
