In 2012, Governor Deval L. Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray created the Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force (MASS Task Force), which was a call to action to begin a long-term initiative to support all military installations in Massachusetts in order to both collaborate with them and explore opportunities to bring new missions. In 2013 members of the MASS Task Force, MassDevelopment, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation – Aeronautics Division studies opportunities in support of economic development opportunities which would support the community and military. From this an Aiport Business Plan was developed.
The Airport Business Plan for the Westover Aiport reflects over six months of data collection, research, and analysis in cooperation with the Westover Airport Business Plan Project Stakeholder Committee.
