Grove Airport Gets Grant for New Terminal Building

GROVE, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission has approved a $500,000 state grant for the construction of a new terminal building at Grove Municipal Airport.

Officials say Grove will provide a 50 percent match to pay for the $1 million project. The 4,400-square-foot terminal building will feature a manager's office, a large waiting room, a pilot's lounge and two exterior decks.

The structure will also offer a conference room that can be used by local groups or businesses flying into the general aviation airport.

Airport manager Lisa Jewett says the new terminal building will help Grove economically. She says improvements to the airport can help attract businesses to a nearby industrial park.
