Collins Street Arlington, TX 76018 Ofc: 817-459-5570 Fax: 817-466-8653 The Airport will hold a meeting for tenants on Wednesday May 11, 2016, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the lobby of the Arlington Municipal Airport terminal building. Topics will include the assessment of the Airport’s T-hangars, the repair plan, lease terminations, and the City’s new Fire Marshall will be available for questions and com- ments regarding the current fire regulations. Last year in advance of a hangar maintenance project, the Airport conducted an initial assessment of the Airport’s four oldest City T-hangar buildings. T-hangar Rows 1 and 3 were constructed about 1968; T-hangar Rows 4 and 5 were constructed in 1978. T-hangar Row 2 was destroyed by fire in 2005. T-hangar row 6 was constructed on the southern end of the Airport in 2009. The report found that T-hangar rows 4 and 5 are in fair condition and can be repaired. This will include some structural steel repair, refurbishing the electrical wiring, new lights, interior and exterior painting, and sheet metal work as needed. The bid package is almost complete and will be released in May. Our plan is to select a contractor and finalize a schedule for repairs by June 15 th . Hangar Inspections Annual hangar Inspections will be postponed until the hangar repair project is com- plete. Please plan to attend the Tenant Meeting on May 11, 2016 if you have questions regarding the inspections, or the T-Hangar Use and Ancil- lary Storage policy.
