The Illinois DOT selected Palwaukee Municipal as the state’s general aviation reliever airport of the year. Palwaukee was chosen for its work in community support, airport maintenance and “overall promotion of general aviation.” Airport manager Dennis Rouleau credited the two-year-old PACE (Palwaukee Airport Community Engagement Council) outreach program for helping to shift the community’s attitude toward the airport. The council is an airport/citizen group organized to address airport issues raised by the local community.
