Comcast announced this week that it will relocate its Island customer service center from Vineyard Haven to a larger, more centrally located office at the airport business park on Dec. 17.

The new facility at 19 East Line Road will offer customers additional parking and a larger and more comfortable lobby area than Comcast’s current location on State Road in Vineyard Haven. The center will feature the full range of Comcast’s products and also will serve as home base for the company’s on-Island technical staff.


A long-running rent dispute between Dukes County and the Martha's Vineyard Airport dissolved Wednesday in an amicable resolution.

Airport commissioners used a letter prepared by fellow commissioner and county commission chairman John S. Alley as a blueprint to spell out when and where rent would be paid by the county or its agencies, and where the county would use airport property essentially rent-free.


Continuing the development of the airport business park, the airport commissioners this week approved the schedule for distributing lots at the park during the next four months. In their Wednesday evening meeting, they also discussed how best to monitor infrastructure development of the park’s buildings.
The commissioners agreed to make seven lots at the business park available for lease over the next four months. Three will be available in October, two in November and two in January.


Once a wasteland of mismanagement and neglect, the airport business park — under new leadership — is shaping up and filling up. And, with plans to polish the park’s image already under way, the business park will prove an appropriate addition to the much anticipated new terminal complex.
After a good 45 minutes of arguing over semantics, the Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission last week approved a plan by county manager Carol Borer to provide administrative assistance and staff support to the Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission and the airport manager.


Six years after a master plan was commissioned for the Martha’s Vineyard Airport in an attempt to make an asset from an eyesore, significant changes are beginning to take shape.
The first tenant in a new 63-acre airport business park off Barnes Road is already on the site and, when utility lines are put in place sometime in the year ahead, other businesses are expected to move in rapidly.
