History

The Montgomery County Airpark was first established on December 10, 1959 by special exception granted by the Montgomery County Board of Appeals.  The Montgomery County Airpark Liaison Committee was first established by Resolution No. 11-1826 on January 23, 1990 for the purpose of increased communication between the community, the County, Airpark users, and the Airpark operator.  The Committee existed under that resolution for a period of 18 months and was extended by subsequent resolutions until July 1, 2016.  It was then re-established in 2017 by Resolution Number 18-838.
