Airport District to hear presentation on golf course feasibility

Truckee-Tahoe Airport District board members will hear a presentation this morning on the feasibility of locating a golf course on airport property, airport General Manager Peter Soderquist said.

“I’m going to let the consultant talk to the board and they can investigate whether we might want to put in a golf course or driving range,” Soderquist said.

He said a golf course could serve the district by bringing in additional revenue, and would be a compatible use for land on the airport’s outer perimeter.

The property under consideration lies between the airport entrance road and Northstar, on north side of Highway 267.

The consultant who will speak to the board is Ron Carciere of Golf Course Appraisal, a nationally-known firm which specializes in feasibility studies for golf courses.

“If the district want to consider this, it would be best to ask someone in the business if there is a potential here or not. before taking it the next step,” Soderquist said.

In other business the board will:

Consider authorization of the general manager to attend the American Association of Airport Executives General Aviation Airport Conference in San Diego Sept. 21-23, 1998.

Receive a briefing on the status of the construction of the H Row hangars at the airport. The discussion will include an update by Truckee-Donner Public Utility District employees, who will discuss upgrading the fire flow at the hangars.

Receive a briefing on the status of ramp repair around the C, D and E rows of hangars.

Consider scheduling a meeting to review the draft 1998-99 budget.
