The trustees of the Katama Airfield Trust and the Commissioners of the Katama Airfield hereby request your consideration of voting “yes” for the replacement of the hangar at the Katama Airfield at the Town Election on April 11th.
Funding for a new airplane hangar at the Katama Airfield, narrowly defeated at the Edgartown town election April 12, will be subject to a recount.
Dear Edgartown Voters:
The trustees of the Katama Airfield Trust and the Commissioners of the Katama Airfield urge you to vote “yes” for the replacement of the hangar at the Katama Airfield at the Town Election on April 11th.
A painstaking hand recount Monday found the vote for a new Katama Airfield hangar was a tie.
In April, residents of Edgartown will be asked to vote on a warrant article to reconstruct the historic Katama Airfield hangar. The airfield’s commissioners are asking you to vote “yes” for the warrant article.
A long-planned replacement of the World War II-era airplane hangar at Katama Airfield is slated to come before Edgartown voters this spring as the town takes a new direction in managing the grass airfield.
After eight years of legal wrangling, Edgartown selectmen cleared the way Monday for a new aircraft hangar at Katama Airfield.
Edgartown selectmen agreed on Monday to the terms of a deal hammered out with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) that would allow the town to replace one of two hangars at Katama airfield with a much larger hangar and bring an end to a tussle with the national conservation organization that’s lasted more than eight years.
The Katama airport, 128 acres by the shore, might have been a developer’s dream come true. But Steve Gentle liked it just the way it was.
