There is no staff recommendation. This item was requested as a Future Agenda Item by Mayor Lander.
Staff reached out to other airports in the area about allowing temporary port-a-port hangars. Responses were received from the Hanford Airport and Paso Robles Airport about temporary hangars being allowed on airport property. Both airports allow temporary port-a-port hangars. One airport noted during the citizens comment was the Santa Monica Airport, which no longer allows port-a-port hangars.
During the discussions Airport Managers noted the following points:
- If allowed, they need to be properly anchored (may want to require a concrete pad).
- Will the structures be aesthetically consist with the current airport hangars?
- If they begin to rust, we want to ensure they are pressure washed.
- The lease would be a ground lease and want to ensure it is month to month. Agreement should have strong language to remove from Airport property at the request of the City.
The example of the port-a-port hangars provided by Peter Banos is attached.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
Undetermined at this time.
