Airport Master Plan Update -- September 16, 2019
Airport User Survey #2:
The City's airport planning consultant, Mead & Hunt, is recommending that the conclusions of User Survey #2 not be incorporated into the draft airport master plan. City project staff and the chairperson of the Airport Master Plan Advisory Committee agree with this conclusion. For more information, see Mead & Hunt's Memorandum on Airport User Surveys and the City's statement regarding airport surveys.
Project Timeline Extended:
The master plan project will extend several months into 2020. Mead & Hunt is in the process of addressing comments provided by the Federal Aviation Administration regarding the draft Aviation Forecasts chapter of the master plan. After they have received FAA’s concurrence and revised the chapter accordingly, the firm will edit the draft Facility Requirements chapter as necessary before proceeding with drafting the Alternatives Analysis chapter. Once a draft plan is available, the City of Middleton will collaborate with the Towns of Middleton and Springfield to prepare a community survey, which is currently anticipated to be undertaken in early 2020.
