Ogden mulling $1.5 million in improvements at airport

December 30, 2019 GMT

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — The city of Ogden is considering more than $1.5 million in improvements of its airport to accommodate an aerospace company.

The Standard-Examiner reported Sunday that the Ogden City administration is requesting new water infrastructure at Ogden-Hinckley Airport be added to a list of necessary capital improvement projects.

Aerospace company Borsight is expanding its operation and plans to develop two buildings at the airport. Officials say the airport’s current water and fire flow infrastructure can’t sustain the two buildings. The proposed project would establish a new water line connected to an underground well that’s being built.

Last year, the city touted Borsight’s expansion would bring new office and shop space.

The investment, worth $6.3 million, would create 95 new jobs over the next seven years, according to the city.
