PROJECT 1: We have received the grant for the removal of obstructions (think, trees) both on and off the airport and have lined up a contractor to do the work. However, because so much of the work involves wetlands, we have to wait for next winter and hope that the temperature gets cold enough - long enough to firm up the ground to be able to cross through the wet areas to access the trees that need to be cleared.
PROJECT 2: We have applied for a grant for planning and design to complete our perimeter wildlife fence around the airfield. As you may know, we have a concern with deer, bear, moose, etc. entering the airfield on the east end, and then getting trapped inside the existing fence. Assuming the application is approved, we would then follow it up with another grant application for the actual construction.
