The Sumter Airport has been identified through strategic planning as a major economic development asset to the Sumter community. The Sumter Airport complements the availability of aviation-trained workers who came to Sumter through Shaw Air Force Base. But the Airport is not ready for
development as the water supply is inadequate, and there is no sewer system.
To make the Sumter Airport truly ready for economic development, Sumter needs new, larger water lines and a sewer system, both with plenty of excess capacity to host future growth.
An airport with completed infrastructure and ready for growth will also compete for Federal Aviation Administration grants more effectively.
