The parking apron, fuel facilities, and automobile parking are considered land-side facilities. A partial parallel taxiway, 35 feet in width, is located on the northeasterly side of the north 530 feet of the runway.

Hangars


Currently, there are no public hangars located on airport property. All hangars are privately owned and constructed on adjacent private property, either in the Airpark Subdivision or on private properties on the northeast side of the Airport. All of the hangars are conventional or Quonset-type hangars. There are no T-hangars available for storage of aircraft. Per FAA regulations, access to the Airport facilities by aircraft from adjacent private properties is only granted by the signing of a "through the fence" access agreement with the City and the payment of an annual access fee.
