The Colorado Springs Airport is ready to update its Master Plan with a goal of meeting FAA standards over the next 25 years.
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. "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 public involvement that will include the FAA, area military installations, airport users and residents.
Master Plan development is expected to take 12 to 18 months and will follow the process prescribed by the FAA.
