A South Coast airport is working on a major expansion plan to help ease a lack of hangar space.
Ventura County officials are considering a proposal to add 100,000 square feet of commercial hangar space at Camarillo Airport. RKR Incorporated wants to build four hangars and office space on a vacant six acre chunk of land on the northeast end of the airport.
Ventura County’s Department of Airports put out a request for proposals on projects on the site, but after failing to get a response started directly negotiating with RKR.
The plan calls for the company to spend at least $20 million dollars building the project, and to pay nearly $20,000 a month in rent. The proposal is set to go to Ventura County Supervisors for their consideration Tuesday.
