SCRAA Pauses Pursuit of Regional Airport

By Sam Parsons

The South Central Regional Airport Agency (SCRAA) has officially paused their pursuit of a regional airport between the cities of Oskaloosa and Pella.

On Wednesday, the SCRAA hosted their first meeting in just under four months and passed a resolution notifying the cities of Oskaloosa and Pella that they are “unable to complete the necessary land acquisitions for the proposed regional airport” and that they will not pursue the regional airport “until instructed by the City of Oskaloosa and the City of Pella.” According to the agency, Mahaska County’s withdrawal from the SCRAA no longer makes it possible for them to acquire the remaining land needed for the project.

The resolution also stated that the agency will continue to own and lease the land they have already acquired.
