WASHINGTON D.C.-- Regional officials are gearing up to meet with national leaders and Pentagon personnel in Washington D.C. April 22-23 in the hopes of keeping civilian and troop strength strong at Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center.

Working together works in Central Louisiana!  England Airpark is built on that principle.  That teamwork philosophy was put into action recently when England Airpark’s Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Department responded to a Fire District 2 request for assistance at a dangerous structure fire located in a nearby recycling facility.

Progress continues to be made with the England Airpark Neighborhood Noise Mitigation program.  With the acquisition of properties, it is necessary to demolish the structures on site. 

Everyone marvels at the aircraft on display at England Airpark’s Heritage Park.  This stunning display would not be possible without the cooperation of the national museum of United States Air Force.  At its recent meeting the England Authority Board of Commissioners approved renewal of a lease between England and the National Museum for the aircraft on display. 

England Airpark is happy to announce the extension of two leases with Cleco to support the redevelopment of the Cleco General Office Building.  For two years, England Airpark has been proud to house employees of Cleco dislocated by the major renovation of the general office building. 

To prepare for the arrival of the new $1 million Aircraft and Rescue Firefighting Vehicle, the England Authority Board of Commissioners declared surplus and excess the 1995 ARFF vehicle to be replaced.  As surplus property, the vehicle will be bid to secure the highest price possible for disposal of the property.
