The current tower was not originally constructed to serve as an air traffic control tower (ATC), but an observation area. The new ATC will allow increased visual capacity, a safety necessity, and will have adequate space to house all equipment and meet the needs of the staff and customers. The project will be a valuable use of taxpayer funds because it will create approximately 20 jobs and allow aircraft controllers to have the visual capacity to safely guide all inbound and outbound flights.
