Recipient: Lakes District Airport Society
Strategy: Planning and Research
Description: The purpose of this project was to conduct a feasibility analysis to determine the viability of constructing a 2,500 sq. ft. terminal building at the Baker Airport (CYPZ). The airport currently has no heated facility for visitors or medical staff. Lakes District Airport Society (LDAS) plans to recover costs ongoing to operate and maintain the building through meeting room rental, membership increases, cafeteria lease, and office rental. The terminal building and the planned increase in service are necessary parts of the Lakes District economic diversification efforts, such as mining and tourism.
