  • About the Airport Master Plan

    The goal of a master plan is to provide guidelines for future airport development, which will satisfy aviation demand in a financially feasible manner, while at the same time resolving the aviation, environmental, and socioeconomic issues existing in the community.

    The Airport Master Plan is the planner’s concept of the long-term development of an airport. It displays the concept graphically and reports the data and logic upon which the plan is based. Master plans are prepared to support modernization of existing airports and creation of new airports, regardless of size, complexity, or role.
