Airnort Commission Submits Its
Report to Mayor Livesley and
Members at Annual Meeting
Following is the final report of
the airport commission which has
charge of purchase and improve
ment of Salem's municipal air
port. The report was submitted to
the city council at Monday night's
meeting, at which time a new
committee, composed of council
members only, was appointed to
take over operation of the air
port: TO THE HONORABLE MAYOR
AND' COMMON COUNCIL OF
THE CITY OF SALEM
We, your special airport com
mittee, consisting of Watson
Townsend. chairman; W. W.
Rosebraugh, and - Paul - Johnson
from the city council, George
Vick, Fred Erixon, and Olliver
Myers, from the chamber of com
merce, and J. J. Elliott, Carl Nel
son, and Brazier C. Small, from
the American Legion, beg to sub
mit the following final report.
We have, as previously report
ed, recommended and the city has
purchased approximately 215
acres of land lying about one-half
a mile south and east of the city
limits. The larger portion of this
land was purchased at a very rea
sonable price from the state of
Oregon and the balance from pri
vate owners. The land itself has
been cleared of trees and obsta
cles. A considerable amount of
leveling has been done and a new
ditch constructed on the south
end, which handles a good por
tion of the over-flow water dur
ing highwater periods. Four run
ways have been constructed, tak
ing care of every wind direction,
the runways varying in: length
from 3300 to 4100 feet. One
large hangar equipped with a ma
chine shop, office, and watch
man's quarters has been con
structed, the hangar having inside
dimensions of 80 by 100 feet with
20 feet clearance. The hangar is
floored with concrete and in front
of the hangar is a large apron ap
proximately "100 by 116. The
Shell Oil company, has construct
ed a complete fueling unit and
a3 soon as their lease is consum
mated with the city.
The city attorney should be in
structed to complete the vacation
of the old county road in the
southwest corner of the airport.
The site selected will be ham
pered with water during extreme
high-water periods unless in the
future adequate drainage facili-
J ties are provided by the city. It
is suggested by your committee
that cooperating with the county
court the ditch along the left side
6f the Turner road, which is a
county road, be deepened and
that a spoil bank or levy similar
to the one now constructed on
the south end be built along the
eastern side of the airport. This
will prevent surface flood water
from coming across the airport
from the east. Mr. Eyerly, the
the regular meeting this after
noon at the church. Mrs. L. R.
Chambers will be In charge of the
20 Reductions on All
water conditions and make notes
ot them during the winter so that
by spring the city should have ad
equate, data for directing any
drainage work necessary. .
While the field is now generally
level, the condition of the area
outside of the runways should. Jn
the opinion of your committee,
receive further work so that the
entire area will be level and suit
able for the landing of airplanes.
It will be necessary in the future,
after the leveling process is com
pleted, to treat the runways in
such a manner so as to hold the
smaller gravel aud prevest dust
upon the landing and taking off
of airplanes. Offe plan which your
committee would suggest for fur
ther study is that the runways be
given a proper oil treatment and
that the area outside of the run
ways be seeded to grass so that it
would form a heavy sod. This
would give the necessary protec
tion and at the same time mark
out the runways in such a man
ner as to make their location
more easy from the air.
While the airport is now com
paratively free from obstacles due
to its location and the contour of
the land around It there are sev
eral obstacles which must be tak
en care of. The power line of the
Portland Electric Power com
pany and the telephone line be
longing to the Pacific Telephone
and Telegraph company along the
Turner road on the east have
both been condemned by depart
ment of commerce representatives
and by visiting aviators. Both of
these companies have agreed
with your committee to remove
their lines, but we would sug
gest that this matter be no long
er delayed, as it may cause the
death of visiting aviators and de
struction of planes. Other obsta
cles, such as the city incinerator
stack, than can not be removed
should be painted with regula
Your committee has not seen
fit to expend any money out of
the present budget on lighting.
The government, rrewever, is
erecting on the airport site a
large beacon light, and after this
is erected enough lights should
be provided to permit an emer
gency landing at night. Should a
plane be in trouble and be at
tracted to the "field by the bea
con light, it would be necessary
to have emergency landing lights
at least in order for the plane to
make a safe landing. The emer
gency lights could be purchased
at a comparatively small figure
and they should be installed as a
part of the future lighting equip
ment for the field. It will be nec
essary some time in the near fu
ture to provide such lighting
equipment, including boundary
The field itself has been crit
icized by the department of com
merce representatives for not
having a visible circle which can
be seen during wet weather. Your
committee has taken steps toward
Pairs to d
securing a concrete circle. Such
plan will be submitted to the
council. The hangar should be
lettered with the word "Salem"
in large letters. This matter Is
also under consideration at the
present time. In addition to
these markings, there should be
large signs off tw et three flat
top buildings If tn elt. such as
the new grand stand! attthe Fair
grounds and, " or two of the
larger canneries, showing the
name of the town and the direc
tion to the airpoit. A. jnap should
be made of the urport in accord
ance with the department of com
merce regulations and forwarded
to the department, showing its di
mensions, location, ' and other
data about it. They, hi turn, will
publish it and it wllL be forward
ed to all persons and:. companies
interested in commercial aviation
enterprises. The .amy and navy
aviation units also desire to re
ceive such data on the airport.

The city should purchase a lim
ited amount of fire equipment to
have at the new hangar, if such
equipment is now not available
through the fire department.
3IEANS FOR FUTURE DE
VELOPMENT The $50,000.00 fund provided
by the bond issue is now about
exhausted, and while the city has
received perhaps more in the way
of ap airport for the $50,000.00
than any other city on the Pacific
coast, there are yet, as above
noted, many things to be done to
complete the airport and keep up
with aviation development. Your
committee would suggest that be
ginning with next year $10,000.
00 be placed in the budget an
nually for development of the air
port and that this amount be
kept in the budget for at least
five years, or until the airport is
fully developed. Your committee
believes that the airport is now
under ood management and that
it would be advantageous to keep
it under similar management un
til aviation traffic is more fully
developed. Care should be taken
by the city to protect future rev
enue from the ajrport for the city
in giving concessions, etc., to re
imburse the ritv for emenditiires
