The Port of Skagit (Washington) has purchased, for $485,100, a 95-acre parcel abutting Skagit Regional Airport to further buffer airport activity from encroachment. The port is pursuing corporate and general aviation growth, but does not foresee scheduled air carrier service. Acquiring the property, according to the Port Executive Director Patsy Martin will allow the property to remain industrially zoned preventing incompatible use.
