Airport master plan OKd

County > Building a taxiway is top priority

By Arin McKenna

The Los Alamos County Council’s first Friday afternoon meeting was dominated by the review of a new Airport Master Plan. Councilors green lighted the proposed plan in a 6-0 vote, with council member Rick Reiss away on travel.
The Federal Aviation Administration recommends that master plans be updated every seven to 10 years. The Los Alamos County Airport plan had not been updated since 1994.
The plan is not only critical to short- and long-term planning, but is a crucial element in receiving FAA funding for airport projects.
The county contracted with Delta Airport Consulting to develop the plan. Staff worked closely with the consultants and their sub-consultant Coffman Associates, a firm that specializes in noise and master planning at airports of similar size and activity.
A Planning Advisory Committee comprised of 20 individuals provided input on a regular basis. Members included representatives from the New Mexico Department of Transportation Aviation Division, based pilot population, the county Community & Economic Development Department and Public Works Department, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), Civil Air Patrol (CAP) and two residents from the Eastern Area.
