Since 1943, the land in question has not been required for aviation, or other government use, and is currently vacant. Suffolk County entered into a longterm lease agreement, contingent upon FAA final approval, with a solar power company after a competitive bidding process. The solar installation would consist of an 18. I-acre site on the north side of the airport and a 7.7-acre site on the south side of the airport.
