Highlighting Our Airport Area Communities
As I continue to highlight our surrounding airport communities, we switch gears to neighboring Findlay Township. We looked at the residential growth of Moon Township last month and now we move on to the period of sustained growth in Findlay.

The residential population in Findlay Township has increased by 14% since 2000. Since that time the number of employees working in the Township has increased by more than tenfold. Major public infrastructure projects have fueled that economic growth over the past two decades, including the construction of the Pittsburgh International Airport, the upgrade of the former PA 60 to Interstate 376, and the completion of the PA, 576 expressway toll road connecting the airport and Interstate 376 to US 22, in addition to water and sewer infrastructure upgrades at the municipal level.

This remarkable growth would not have been possible without careful planning, foresight, and investment by private sector partners. As a result of numerous public-private partnerships, Findlay is now home to several first-class corporate parks along Interstate 376 and PA 576. As space quickly begins to fill in each, the Township is proactively examining the market to see what market sectors may be most viable and advantageous to Findlay Township in this next wave of
development. As we look at the residential growth in Findlay, the horizon looks brighter than ever: Residential dwellings with tentative approval – 1,599 and Apartments – 216 units

If you are looking at the airport area for commercial land use, Findlay is bringing it with approximately 2,500,000 square feet of warehouse/distribution with 766,225 square feet currently under construction. As the Pittsburgh International Airport rises with its 700,000 square foot terminal, we are all looking for an exciting new decade of sustained growth and opportunity here in the airport community.

Next leaders tend to struggle with more nuanced decisions (as do we all!). Unlike their successful track records as contributors, executive-level decisions rely on a set of skills that might not yet be developed. Making executive-level decisions is a skill in and of itself that needs to be consciously nurtured and developed.
