2012 Aspen Airport Planning
The Aspen/Pitkin County Airport’s Master Plan is a guide that will present a comprehensive overview of the airport’s needs, including the timing and cost for proposed improvements, an analysis of financing options and a clear implementation plan. The Master Plan is currently being updated from its 2004 version. The goal of the master planning process is to provide general facility improvement [page name]guidelines that satisfy aviation demand while remaining compatible with the environment, other modes of transportation, community development and other established community goals, such as affordable housing.
Specific objectives of this Master Plan Update include:
- Preparing a 20-year development plan that is technically correct, environmentally sound, financially viable, and implementable
- Identifying the airport’s land requirements needs to ensure the Airport’s long term operational viability
- Focusing on community air service and sustainable practices
