Offers Taken For Collingwood Airport


The Town of Collingwood is looking for someone or some entity to take over the Collingwood Airport and keep it operating as a public access aerodrome. The municipality is open to all options for the continued operation of the airport. “In September of 2017, Collingwood Council declared the Collingwood Regional Airport lands as surplus to the needs of the municipality and is now seeking offers to purchase or lease the Collingwood Regional Airport lands with options including an outright sale, public and/or private partnership offers, and long-term operational lease agreements,” the town said in a news release. “The Town is seeking a purchaser that is willing to maintain the asset as a publicly accessible Airport for a period of time.”

Offers can be submitted here or in person at the Town of Collingwood clerk’s office by June 15 at 3:30 p.m. Collingwood was in the news last year when a controversial wind farm proposal within the circuit of the airport was finally withdrawn after a prolonged legal battle supported by COPA’s Freedom to Fly Fund. The airport property totals 392 acres and has a 5,000-foot paved runway and a 2,548-foot turf runway.
