"The city has some exciting plans for the future development of the Watsonville Airport, including a significant extension of the main runway, replacing visual slope indicators, and installing a new precision approach system. We are currently performing engineering studies to develop a master airport utilities and drainage plan. Additionally, the city has plans to build 100 new hangars. This increase in hangars will provide additional shelter for aircraft parking, increased revenues for the airport, and an increase in tax revenue for the city and Pajaro Valley Unified School District due to the increased number of aircraft based in Watsonville.
