The Charlevoix Airport

A long desired project for the City of Charlevoix Municipal Airport is receiving favorable consideration for funding approval by the Michigan Department of Transportation. A paved, lighted, and landscaped parking lot is a priority item that the people who use the airport, and the City of Charlevoix have long dreamed of. The current parking lot area poses a number of challenges including water ponds in heavy rains, mud traps in the spring and fall, and air heavy with dust in the summer months.

Estimated cost of the project is approximately $900,000.00. Once final approval for funding is obtained from the Michigan Aeronautics Commission, the City of Charlevoix would contract for engineering design services, including a review of those plans by a traffic consultant. Construction of the parking lot is expected to commence in 2003.

As quoted by Karyn Brooks, Airport Manager, "We look forward to providing this pleasant addition to the airport for use by our Charlevoix and Beaver Island residents, and our visitors as well. We have such a nice looking terminal building, a beautiful landscaped berm by the highway, and this is just the icing on the cake!”
