(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Airport Advisory Board for Rosecrans met Wednesday to talk about future options for new space.

The 139th Airlift Wing will be moving part of its operations into newly-built facilities on the northern side of the airport leaving its old space available.

Board staff said they hope to bring in new companies to the airport. A business plan developed by the board will allow for new businesses to occupy the space. New ordinances recently passed by the city will allow for the necessary funding for the plan. 

"Our main goal is to get somebody that is associated with the military that could bring some good workforce development into the community," Rosecrans General Manager Abe Forney said. 

The board also discussed CIP funds which they say will go to lighting and electrical upgrades. They plan to meet again in April.
