I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what's in it for the city? What does the city get financially from the project? The empty lot is not costing us anything now. We have money for the Hobart people but we can't even keep the trees alive in downtown Quincy.

Am I right thinking that these will be income-based rent apartments? If so, these are going to be people that don't have the money to visit many businesses downtown beside Dollar General and the thrift shops. I thought we were trying to gentrify the district. Upscale apartments like Austin Properties is adding would be more in line.

Cape Air drops fares as September passenger numbers fall

City, airline working to achieve 10,000 passenger to qualify for $1 million subsidy

A decline in passenger boardings at Quincy Regional Airport comes on the heels of a push from the City and Cape Air to still hit 10,000 enplanements this year.

September boardings were down to 775 from 823 in September 2011.

Jeff Steinkamp, interim airport director, said weather was a factor in the drop.

“Passenger Boardings took a moderate decline in September due to several reasons, including the prudent cancelation of seven flights during the past month mostly because of severe weather flying conditions,” Steinkamp said.  “These unsafe conditions were not so much experienced in the Quincy area but mostly in the surrounding St. Louis (Lambert International) Airport vicinity.”

Steinkamp said QRA is still running 8.5% ahead of 2011’s year-to-date boardings at 7,235 passengers and that number is 31% ahead of 2010’s mark.

Andrew Bonney of Cape Air says the price is being reduced on selected St. Louis flights to $39 to help them get to 10,000 so the City can qualify for $1 million of Federal Grant money that can be used for Capital Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Projects.

“This discount fare is our way of saying thanks to the Quincy community for its support as we continue to work for 10,000 enplanements in 2012,” Bonney said.

Steinkamp added that Quincy Mayor John Spring has been working on an incentive with Cape Air in an effort to increase the chances of hitting the 10,000 passenger mark.
