Is an airpark in the works in Moses Lake, WA?

Like many municipally-owned airports, income from FBO and hangar rent don’t often cover all the expenses of operating a publicly-owned, publicly-used airport.

A Columbia Basin Herald article reports, “At the [Moses Lake] council’s previous meeting in March, [Jeffrey] Bishop examined creating a 100-lot airpark subdivision that would mix houses with hangars and allow residents to drive their airplanes down subdivision streets and park them in their personal hangars.”

Jeffrey Bishop is a consultant and former executive director of the Port of Moses Lake.

Moses Lake Municipal Airport (W20) has a 2,513′ x 50′ asphalt runway and is located on the east edge of town.
