Industrial Sub-Area Plan


The adopted Industrial Sub-Area Plan and feasibility study analyzed approximately 300 acres of industrial lands on the south end of the City of Airway Heights. The study assessed the practicality of future industrial development in the area, examining existing and future needs for infrastructure and utilities in order to support future growth. The study also includes an economic analysis of the region and identified target industries best suited for the subarea, given its geographic location and proximity to a vast network of transportation options. 

The subarea was designated an “industrial district,” as such the district and the city has great potential for development and regional commerce. The purpose of funding the subarea planning effort was to:

  • Understand the current city and regional economic position and demographics,
  • Determine the growth potential associated with full build out of the subarea, and
  • Develop a means to spark growth through infrastructure improvements, financing mechanisms, and marketing this potential on a local, regional, and national scale.
