Camarillo Airport to get stimulus funds

CAMARILLO, Calif. The Ventura County Star reports that the airport is one of 14 in the state set to receive special /*Federal Aviation Administration grants*/. The $1.5 million awarded to the /*Camarillo Airport*/ will go toward repaving two aging taxiways where the asphalt is disintegrating.

The /*Ventura County Board of Supervisors*/ will have to vote to authorize receiving that grant. County Airport Director Todd McNamee says he plans to appear at the board meeting April 28 to discuss the matter.

If the grant is approved, the airport improvements could start as early as this summer.

The /*Bob Hope Airport in Burbank*/ and the /*Compton/Wooley Airport*/ were also awarded some of the stimulus money.

The FAA grants were made based on a priority system that considers safety, security, infrastructure, runway safety, and increased capacity and environmental impact.
