MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Preliminary plans for an aircraft manufacturer were unveiled Monday night with approval from the Berkeley County Planning Commission.
"Welcome to Martinsburg," said Kay Stout, Planning Commission member.
TLM Aerospace Incorporated announced its plan to build at the Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport in October.
On Monday, Virginia Stotler, representing Bruce Van Wyk Enterprises - the developer and contractor for the project - and Stephen Cvijanovich and Ed Renn, of the engineering and architecture firm Davis, Renn & Associates Inc., presented a draft of the project's first phase.
Phase one was advanced to the public hearing stage by the planning commissioners.
It includes a 40,000-square-foot main building, which will house a portion of the manufacturing, a 22,000-square-foot paint shop and a 4,000-square-foot office building.
