New Ulm Municipal Airport Crosswind Runway

Location: 100 North Broadway New Ulm, MN, 56073

Project Sponsor: City of New Ulm

Requested Amount: $2,500,000

Member Certification Form

Use of Funds and Justification: 

The funding would be used for land acquisition, project design and construction of the turf crosswind runway. 

The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because the crosswind runway is needed to provide the FAA required minimum wind coverage (95%) at the New Ulm Municipal Airport (ULM). Once the crosswind runway alignment is resolved, the city would be able to open additional residential development opportunities around the airport.
