Eagle County airport kicks off planning effort

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – The Eagle County Regional Airport has kicked off a master planning process intended to outline the needs of current and future users of the airport for the next two decades.

Ninety-five percent of the $526,000 planning project is being funded through a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration. The county has partnered with Jviation, an airport planning firm based in Denver, to facilitate the approximately 18-month process.

According to Terminal Manager Chris Anderson, the 20-year master plan will ensure that development at the airport is consistent with the goals of the county and the community. It will determine what facilities are needed, when they will be needed and how much they will cost.

As part of the input collection process, a Planning Advisory Committee comprised of local citizens is being formed to provide recommendations to the Board of Commissioners and staff. Those interested in serving on the committee are encouraged to send letters of interest no later than Tuesday via e-mail to chris.anderson@eaglecounty.us; or via fax to 970-328-2687, or via U.S. Mail to: Chris Anderson, Airport Terminal Manager, P.O. Box 850, Eagle, CO 81631

Additional information on the master planning process, including schedules, presentations and videos, is available online at http://www.eaglecounty.us/EGEMasterPlan.
