SAN ANGELO, TX — On the City Council’s secret executive session meeting agenda two weeks ago was an item concerning an “economic development” initiative for San Angelo’s airport, Mathis Field. We asked around and everyone in charge was mum about what that was. Was it a new aviation services company? The sale of an FBO to Angelo State University? Airport Manager Jeremy Valgardson didn’t know when asked. He said there are multiple initiatives, including preparations for the air race in late 2021, but was unsure if any deal was close to being struck concerning a second airline.
SAN ANGELO, TX — The City of San Angelo Development Corporation projects are managed by the City’s Economic Development Director Guy Andrews. Andrews said Wednesday this area is in the lull before an economic development storm that will drive the economy here for decades. San Angelo, Andrews maintained, sits in the center of a burgeoning transportation and logistics crossroads.
