The Port of Olympia will hold the third public open house on the Olympia Regional Airport Master Plan Update (MPU) on Thursday, May 26, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:30 PM via Zoom.
The Port of Olympia is currently preparing an Airport Master Plan Update (MPU) for the Olympia Regional Airport (OLM). The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends the airport master plan be updated every 5 to 10 years. The previous master plan was completed for OLM in 2013. The update is anticipated to be complete in approximately 15 to 18 months.
An airport master plan is a comprehensive study of an airport and usually describes the short-, medium-, and long-term development plans to meet future aviation demand. The study is 100% funded by the FAA and follows FAA Advisory Circular 150/5070-6B, Airport Master Plans. The purpose of a master plan is not to resolve airport maintenance, operations, property leasing, management, and policies issues; however, when these issues are identified during the master planning process, they will be documented so they can be considered outside of the master plan process.
Public input on the master plan is important to the Port and will be accepted throughout the master plan process.
To view a tentative schedule of meetings and public involvement events, and to join the email distribution list, please visit the project website https://airport.portolympia.com/airport-master-plan/.
Although the Port is responsible for all development decisions, the influence of public input will be documented where possible.
