City Looking to Sell Tacoma Narrows Airport

Having lost millions on the facility in recent years, the City of Tacoma is looking to sell. Pierce County has offered between $3.5 million to $4 million.

"They could in the future build a separate access bridge, but there is no plan to develop any aviation facilities on the north side of Stone Drive," he said.

Winter said that whoever acquires the property will be required to keep it as an airport, and will be free to add more hangars to the 150 or so that already exist on site. Should it wish to expand the runway, the future owner would be required to make the case to the FAA -- something the City of Tacoma has failed to do.
