I see some pavement work west of Hangar 7, on two aircraft parking spots.

Also, the addition of a third above-ground tank southwest of Hangar 7. Any idea what is stored in those tanks? Looking at Gabe's aerial photos, the tanks are circular, horizontal tanks. I'm biased, but those look like fuel storage tanks, maybe 15 to 20,000 gallons each. I'm not sure it would be aviation fuel considering there is the POL tank farm at the south end of the facility. Looks like there is a new concrete loading rack/pad for those tanks, looks sloped on both ends for spill containment.

The third tank has its own loading pad, and I can't tell if it is manifolded together with the other two tanks. If it's not, then this typically implies that the third tank is a different product than the other two.
