The Helena Regional Airport Authority has a number of land parcels in Helena that are subdivided and zoned for commercial property development. The property along Washington Street and portions of Custer Avenue is zoned “B-2” allowing for a variety of commercial uses. The Airport Authority, however, has developed policies to restrict some types of B-2 approved developments. The two types of B-2 restricted businesses are ones that derive its primary income from the sale of alcohol or gaming activities and office buildings larger than 10,000 square feet without additional approval considerations. A plot plan of the Washington Street area can be acquired by emailing Jeff Wadekamper, Airport Director, or by calling 406-442-2821.
The Airport Authority also has property on the south side of the Airport that is pre-zoned for Commercial Light Industrial (CLM) use. All existing parcels owned by the Helena Regional Airport Authority are for lease only.
Costco, Lee Enterprises, Boeing-Helena, Pioneer Aerostructures and other local businesses are all commercial property in Helena being leased from the Helena Regional Airport Authority.
