Newporters Will Vote on Selling Airport

parlin fieldNewport residents will have a lot discuss at the upcoming deliberate session on April 7. One hot topic is on a warrant article put on by petition by Chair of the Conservation Commission, Dick Wentzell. Selectboard Chair Gary Nichols read the article at last night’s Selectboard meeting.

Joe Branch a proponent of the article said he would like to see Newport voters have a choice if they want an airport or not, since most people don’t use the airport. Branch added the sale would also generate tax revenue for the town.

Heath Marsden Manager of Parlin Field Airport said the airport offers Newport opportunities that a town with one doesn’t have like the Aerospace Camp for 60 school students this summer..

According to select board members, the airport is eighty percent self-sustaining.
