Economic Development and Strategic Planning Project

Mount Airy/Surry County Airport Authority approved the County Manager’s request to utilize economic development planning and strategic planning services to be provided by the NC Department of Commerce and Division of Aviation.

Strategic planning will provide best practices to the Airport Authority and staff to maximize the economic development potential of Mount Airy/Surry County Airport. Other project deliverables include quantitative data about the Airport and its impact; qualitative data to include strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats provided by local, regional and statewide stakeholders; and five-year growth and development strategies.

The project is scheduled to begin in March, with a targeted completion by early Fall 2021.
