SUMMARY
The Virginia Department of Aviation administers an Airport Capital Grant Program that provides funding for design services and construction activities.  The maximum state participation for capital projects is eighty percent.

During the June 2021 Virginia Aviation Board meeting, state funding was approved to support airport engineering services to construct an aircraft parking ramp for future corporate hangar development, and an automobile parking lot.  State matching funds will finance eighty percent of the design services project.
BACKGROUND
A state capital grant request for an airport design services project was approved by the Virginia Aviation Board in June.  This project will support the future construction of an aircraft ramp to accommodate the development of corporate hangars for public use.  The ramp will be located near the t-hangar area on the south side of the airfield adjacent to Taxiway H. In addition, this project will include design service activities to construct an automobile parking lot to support business aviation activities. 
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council approve an Ordinance amending the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Appropriation Ordinance to provide for State Aviation capital grant funding, and the local share, and appropriating the same.  The local share will be provided through the Support of General funds.
