Trees will start to come down at Stanhope Airport. 6 hectares of trees will be removed to make way for a 20,000 square foot headquarters for MNR Fire Management. Last week Algonquin Highlands awarded the tender and hope the work will begin immediately.  The next phase of the project is to relocate private hangars to a new location on the property. The new 4 buildings will house 5 hangars each. A tender request has gone out for the construction of the new hangars to start in the spring. The township was able to secure funding for this project from the federal government under their Canada Build program.
