Public meeting on proposed airport renaming on Dec. 19

Dec 13, 2019

The City of Georgetown is hosting a public meeting to collect feedback on proposed name changes to the City’s airport and terminal Dec. 19 at 6 p.m. in the Georgetown Council and Court building, 510 W. Ninth St.

At its Nov. 12 meeting, City Council reviewed a request to rename the Georgetown Municipal Airport to the “Johnny Gantt Regional Airport” and the Airport Terminal Building to the “Buz Landry Terminal Building.” City Council appointed Council members Steve Fought and Kevin Pitts, along with City Manager David Morgan and Assistant City Managers Laurie Brewer and Wayne Reed to a committee to review the request.

During the Dec. 19 meeting, attendees will be able to share feedback on the proposed names.

Per the City’s facility naming policy, the City will host a 30-day public comment period to collect additional feedback after the public meeting. A formal recommendation regarding the facility name changes will be made in early 2020.
