Hoyle Tanner assisted the City of Lake Wales in applying for an Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic Development (OTTED) grant. The City was awarded $4.5 million, of which $3 million was used to construct a new FBO building and T-hangars; and to complete the environmental analysis, design, wetland mitigation, 60-acre property acquisition, and tree clearing for the runway extension project. The new 16,500 square foot FBO building is home to the world-famous Florida Skydiving Center. The remainder of the OTTED grant covered the cost of a new fire suppression tank which is considered a satellite system separate from the City’s three water plants. The new fire suppression tank serves as a suppression system for both the Lake Wales Municipal Airport and the National Guard Armory.
