The approach to involving the community is multi-faceted. The Master Plan includes the establishment of a Planning Advisory Committee, or PAC. The PAC is a group of airport stakeholders who have been asked to volunteer their time to aid in the development of the Airport Master Plan. The PAC will be convened for four (4) meetings to review draft chapters as developed by the consultant team. The same draft chapters made available to the PAC will be posted to this project website.

There are three (3) public information workshops during the master planning process. The first one was held December 18, 2023, and reviewed the draft Inventory and forecast chapters. The second workshop was conducted April 18, 2024, and reviewed the draft materials associated with facility requirements and airport alternatives. The third workshop is tentatively scheduled for late August or early September, 2024. All draft materials can be viewed and downloaded on the Master Plan Documents page.

The workshops have been, and will be, conducted in an open-house format where the public can visit with the project team and ask any questions they may have related to the project. The workshops are typically scheduled in the early evening to allow those heading home from work to stop by or to allow others to come after the dinner hour. The date and time of the second and third workshops will be advertised locally and posted on this project website.

Any interested citizen is encouraged to provide comments and suggestions to the project team. Comment sheets are provided to the PAC and at the public information workshops. Citizens can also utilize the ‘Comment’ feature on this project website. Direct communication with the project managers via phone or email is also acceptable. The project managers for the Airport Master Plan are listed in the ‘Contacts’ at the bottom of this page.
