Article provided by NWA Newspapers -   City Council members caught a glimpse Tuesday night of a future for the city airport that does away with asphalt seas and uninviting wire barriers. Instead of an airport, stakeholders of Louise M. Thaden Field envision an “air park.” The aesthetically pleasing airport would draw visitors with green space and gateways from the recently reworked Southwest I Street and Southwest Regional Airport Boulevard. The airport would mesh better with the trails and nearby parks at Lake Bentonville and the planned Community Center, said Chad Cox, a pilot and instructor. Alderman Bill Burckart, Ward…
