AREAS OF REGIONAL IMPACT

As its name implies the Salisbury – Ocean City- Wicomico Regional Airport (SBY) is a classic example of a regional resource. With an area of approximately one thousand acres and ranking second in size only to Baltimore’s BWI in the State of Maryland, SBY is superbly positioned as a pivot point of future regional economic development. SBY displays a number of unique attributes in addition to the commonly found economic drivers of commercial passenger/freight service and an aeronautics-oriented technology/business park. Among these are:

Sustainable, pressurized municipal water will allow for the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure and enable opportunities for proper expansion and development of this Tier 1 regional resource. This will encourage regional economic resiliency by buttressing both traditional and newly emerging economic sectors.
