      OSHKOSH - Oshkosh's Aviation Business Park is taking flight.

      The city of Oshkosh and Winnebago County held a groundbreaking Thursday for the $4.5 million project.

      The 82 acre park is meant to create and expand businesses and provide jobs related to aviation.

      Elizabeth Harman, CEO of Chamco, said, "it can take a long time to develop and fill a park of this nature. But we believe with the great assets we have in this community including the presence of EAA and the great facility here at Wittman Regional Airport, that we have a lot of great assets that will be attractive to businesses in aviation and aerospace."

      They are hoping the infrastructure for the park will be done by the end of 2015.
