The Tri-City Mayors Coalition, comprised of comprised of leaders from Dover, Rochester and Somersworth, are assessing ongoing development opportunities and initiatives at the Skyhaven Airport in Rochester, including a $7 million grant that will fund runway improvements and the relocation of the taxiway. 

Since Pease Development Authority in Portsmouth purchased Skyhaven Airport in 2008, an estimated $5 to $6 million in federal and state funds have been invested for general infrastructure improvements, while an additional $1.5 million was earmarked for maintenance and safety upgrades.

“Skyhaven Airport is now a true asset for the businesses in the tri-city area,” says Andrew Pomeroy, operations manager at Pease Airport. “Our hope is that newer businesses and those looking to come to the tri-city area capitalize on it as both a transportation hub for executives and as a shipping hub, too.”

The Tri-City Mayors Coalition was formed in 2016 to encourage collaboration between the three Seacoast cities in order to evaluate and explore joint policies and programs that would benefit members of each community. In the past, the coalition has proposed more streamlined and collaborative administrative efforts for fire departments, explored solutions to combat the opioid crisis and considered implementing a consistent system for assessing property values.
