Colorado Springs Airport Plans For The Long-Term

By Neil Ralston

Colorado Springs, Colo. (April 23, 2010)

The Colorado Springs Airport has initiated an update to its Master Plan that will serve as a road map for the development of the Airport over the next 25 years. The plan will focus on maintaining a safe, efficient airfield that meets Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards and on continuing to provide a positive experience for all of the Airport?s customers and users.

According to Director of Aviation Mark Earle, the plan will give priority to safety and security, followed by financial feasibility, operational efficiency, and environmental prudence. ?Aviation is a dynamic industry that challenges the traditional planning and development processes. Our goal is to create a Master Plan that provides us with the flexibility to respond freely as new opportunities arise, while maintaining the regulatory and development standards that have been established for industry and the local community,? said Earle.

A key part of the plan?s development is a focused public involvement program that will include the Airport?s many stakeholders, such as the FAA, area military installations, Airport tenants, community businesses and organizations, Airport users, and area residents.

Master Plan development is expected to take 12 to 18 months and will follow the process prescribed by the FAA. Airport management and a team from Jacobs Consultancy are leading this planning effort, with the citizen-based Airport Advisory Commission providing advice and counsel. After review and coordination with the appropriate local agencies, the plan will be submitted to the FAA for final approval.

To ensure the plan stays on course and its objectives are achieved, the Airport will follow a set of guiding principles developed by the project team. These principles and other information related to the Master Plan will be posted throughout the process on the Airport?s website at www.flycos.com.
