October 09, 2019 10:57am
The Cities of Sioux Center and Orange City, along with Sioux County, were honored for joint efforts to create the Sioux County Regional Airport with a 2019 All-Star Community Award from the Iowa League of Cities.
The new Sioux County Regional Airport, set midway between Sioux Center and Orange City, is a testament to 20 years of collaboration and a vision for economic strength for the region, according to Sioux Center City Manager Scott Wynja.
He says the development of the Sioux County Regional Airport is a great economical tool to recruit business and industry to the region, and, he says it provides the opportunity for existing businesses to expand and grow.
Community leaders from Sioux Center and Orange City accepted the honor at the Iowa League of Cities Annual Conference in Dubuque Sept. 26.
The Sioux County Regional Airport, which opened nearly one year ago, routinely serves multiple jets each week, frequent charter flights and heavy agricultural usage. Business jets that previously had to fly into Sioux Falls or other airports now are able to land on the regional airport’s 5,500-foot runway and can use it in all weather, using instrument landing approaches. The airport’s maintenance and inspection services and pilot/flight training are in high demand. In addition, multiple businesses are based on the airfield.
The All-Star Community Awards are designed to acknowledge and encourage excellence and innovation in local government. The awards recognize and share Iowa’s best public service ideas and demonstrate that those involved in local government are progressive, caring, and committed to their local communities. Only three Iowa communities were selected for this year’s prestigious award.
