Washington has early presents for Klickitat County

Washington state this week announced distribution of nearly $11 million from a special appropriation by the state Legislature; Klickitat County received the most of any single jurisdiction. A $1 million appropriation will go toward development of a “flex space” at the Columbia Gorge Regional Airport in Dallesport where aerospace companies could launch their businesses. American Aerospace has already committed to being the first tenant as it works toward building a fixed-wing aircraft production line that could employ up to 80 people over the next several years.

The second project, backed by $1.5 million in state funding, will create a community center from the office of the former mill in Klickitat and make improvements in the ballpark
