Cape May Airport Ceremony Set for Wednesday, June 8, 2016
 
(Erma, New Jersey)  The Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) will begin construction of a new building to house light industrial and commercial businesses.  The new 15,000 SF building is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.  This building will be the first new building built at the Airport for the express purpose of commercial use since the Airport operation was assumed by the DRBA in 1999.  Current plans for the building call for three finished units, two at 1,500 SF each and one larger 3,000 SF unit.  The remaining building will be remain ‘core and shell’ and available for fit-out in 1,500 SF increments. 
 
What:    Local elected officials, members of area chambers of commerce, and airport tenants will be joined by Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) officials for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of construction of this important new building.  Some of the program participants include:  DRBA Vice Chairman Jim Hogan and Chief Financial Officer Victor Ferzetti; Cape May County Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton; Cape May County Freeholder Will Morey; and Lower Township Mayor Michael Beck.
