Owen Sound Council to Divest of Billy Bishop Airport

Owen Sound Council has voted to declare the Owen Sound Billy Bishop Regional Airport to be surplus to the needs of the municipality. Further, Council directed staff to pursue opportunities to sell the property to a qualified buyer who demonstrates that they have experience with airport operations and the ability to continue operating the facility as an airport.

It is Council’s intent that this disposition of property will not disrupt the current operation of the airport, including ORNGE Air Ambulance and other healthcare and commercial operations.

This decision was made by Council following a Public Consultation period of September 3 – 17.

All operations at the airport will continue during the sale period.

For more information, contact Tim Simmonds, City Manager at 519-376-4440 ext. 1210 or email to tsimmonds@owensound.ca
