Luke Schmidt will speak to leaders on E-town air travel efforts
Elizabethtown is working to get scheduled air service; Adair one of 24 counties supporting effort. Local leaders say service would aid in economic development in Columbia and Adair County
By Sue Stivers, Executive Director, C-AC EDA
The Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority Boards are hosting a special meeting for Businesses, Industries, and community leaders to learn more abut a project which is designed to bring scheduled passenger airline service to Central Kentucky.
Luke Schmidt, President of L.B. Schmidt & Associates, LLC, Prospect, KY, and consultant to the Elizabethtown Airport Board will be at Lindsey Wilson College, Cranmer Dining Center, 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY, Tuesday, June 23, 2009 to provide a complete briefing which are underway to bring airline service to the Elizabethtown Regional Airport (EKX)
Much has been done to bring airline services to EKX. The Central Kentucky region has embraced this effort with 72 formal resolutions of support, including resolutions from the Adair Fiscal Court, Columbia City Council, Columbia/Adair County Chamber of Commerce, Columbia/Adair County Economic Development Authority, and the Columbia/Adair County Tourism Commission.
The establishment of airline service in Central Kentucky will further connect each of the 24 counties in the region to the global economy and will make each county, including Adair County, even more attractive when it comes to recruiting new business and industry to the region, thereby creating new jobs.
The project has attracted the interest of three major airlines and is in the final recruitment phase. Leaders of Adair County are encouraged to join this final push by coming out on June 23, 2009 to hear a short presentation at Lindsey Wilson College beginning at 7:30amCT, to learn more about this important project. Complimentary Coffee and Danish will be provided by Schmidt & Associates.
Community Leaders are encouraged to make reservations by calling the Chamber Office at (270) 384-6020 not later than noon on Friday, June 19, 2009. This will allow Lindsey Wilson to know the size of room needed, amount of food, etc.
I hope each of you can attend.
s/Sue Stivers, Executive Director, Columbia-Adair County Economic Development Authority, Chamber Building, 201 Burkesville ST, Columbia, KY
