OSHKOSH - The city of Oshkosh and Winnebago County have received a federal grant to help build a business park around Wittman Regional Airport.
The $2 million grant from the Economic Development Administration will go toward the creation of the Oshkosh Aviation Business Park, which was approved earlier this year.
The grant was announced by U.S. Rep. Tom Petri (R-6th Dist.).
Petri’s office says the grant will pay for road, water and other infrastructure. The total cost of the business park is $4.64 million. It is expected to create about 230 new jobs and $15 million in private investment.
According to the city, the business park will cater to aviation-related businesses. Lots will have direct access to the airport’s taxiway.
