SIDEBAR (A12): Narrows Airport by the numbers
A study published in September in conjunction with Pierce County's interest in buying the Tacoma Narrows Airport gave these figures:
annual indirect benefits to area, in dollars
estimated value, in dollars
annual payroll, in dollars
acres of land
indirect jobs provided
City of Tacoma-owned buildings
An out-of-state company with experience in airport operations, is "willing to pay more" than the $4 million offered by Pierce County.
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.
The lease deal for Narrows Airport is being negotiated with an unnamed private party.
