Land to be acquired for future airport site in DeWitt County

A new airport is in the works for DeWitt County

CUERO, Texas – A new airport is in the works for DeWitt County.

State House Representative Geanie Morrison gave members of the Cuero Economic Development Corporation an update on legislative work – including the procurement of land for an airport in Cuero. Newly appointed Director of the Cuero Economic Development Corporation, Bobby Seiferman, says an airport would be a game changer for the area.

“I’ve been out, I’ve kind of seen the area where the airport sits now,” Seiferman said. “That would bring so much more potential, it really would. It’ll help recruitment, absolutely.”

“We worked on the bill to acquire the land for a future airport down the road and that went very successfully,” Morrison said.

Morrison went on to say that an airport has been something leaders in DeWitt County have been talking about for a long time and with help from a new bill the project is now headed in the right direction.
