New Chair Named at Nanaimo Airport Commission
John Craig who took over the Chair position at the Nanaimo Airport Commission on April 8 is proud of the Nanaimo Airport and its growth – from the terminal and parking lots to expanded services in the air and on the ground.
Opportunity is what Craig sees when he points to the vacant lands south and north of the terminal.
The Commission is working with the RDN and the community to get the zoning that “will allow us to develop services compatible with the community.
“We will be the champion stewards of environment. We get that we are on the aquifer”
An environmental assessment is underway from which protocols will be developed to go forward. “Zoning bylaws will give us and our community certainty in the future.”
But Craig is in no hurry. “We have to allow time for the process. It’s all about balance, he says.
“We want the best service from the highway to the runway.”
