A new aviation center could be calling Hamilton Township, New Jersey, home in the near future, reports Shore News Today.
A proposal has been presented to the Township Committee that would redevelop a race course into a facility for aviation technology, reports the news source.
South Jersey Economic Development District executive director Gordon Dahl says building an aviation center will bring needed business to the area.
"We looked at studies that were commissioned by other agencies and what we saw was that there's purposes outside the military for unmanned aircraft," Dahl told the paper. "That purpose will generate a lot of economic opportunity."
Airports and aviation facilities have been known to help spur economic growth and stability. Restaurants, stores and hotels are often needed near such complexes. Within those sectors, a number of employees will need to be hired. With unemployment failing to budge far below 10 percent, new job opportunities are needed.
Environmental concerns are often on the minds of people when they think of aviation. Dahl told the paper new construction would consist of eco-friendly buildings.
