The State of Oregon is in the process of divvying out money for local projects; and the Bend Airport's request looks like it has a chance of getting state funds. Bend Airport managers have applied for almost $200,000 in state grant money to pay for replacing the decades old taxiway. A state committee is recommending that 38 projects go forward for funding. Meantime, the City of Bend is also in the process of working on the airport's Master Plan. "That's in the works and what we're trying to do out there is add some additional industrial lands that are airport related. And its a little tight out there now so we're trying to find some room for people who want to be out there, so its a good thing." That was Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore, who was a guest on Thursday’s "Your Town." As for the state grant money: other local projects that made the initial cut include money for the Redmond Airport, Prineville and Sisters airports and a madras railroad improvement project.
