Use of Hartford-Brainard Airport’s Site

The study scope directed staff to examine if the state has maximized the economic value of the land upon which Hartford-Brainard Airport sits. The site’s value to the host municipality, region, and the state was to be described, includeing an examination of the site’s current use as an airport. Accordingly, the study was tp assess the airport’s operations, governance, and business volume. It was also to discuss and explore other uses of the site that have been previously proposed.

Status

The PRI committee approved the study scope on July 9, 2015. Work on the study began January 2016 when staff became available. On Wednesday, July 20, 2016, the PRI committee held a committee meeting for a staff update and an informational public hearing on the Hartford-Brainard Airport study./p>

Per the December 7, 2016 PRI committee agenda, the Brainard Airport site use staff findings and recommendations report was one of four 2016 staff reports to present for committee consideration and action. PRI Co-Chair Senator Fonfara announced at the meeting that the Brainard staff report would be held, and thus not presented for a vote, as he thought the report was incomplete and needed further work. Noting the PRI committee future was unclear, Senator Fonfara said the PRI co-chairs would send a letter to the Auditors of Public Accounts to ask them to consider completing the study.
