[ARCHIVED] Magic Valley Regional Airport Seeks Community Input on Airport Planning

Magic Valley Regional Airport

Public Open House: June 30, 6-8 PM, outside City Hall (203 Main Ave. East)

The public is invited to learn more about the critical role the Magic Valley Regional Airport plays in the local economy and provide comment about planning alternatives under consideration for future development of the airport on Wednesday, June 30 from 6 to 8 p.m., outside City Hall, adjacent to the Twin Falls Tonight Summer Concert in the Downtown Commons.

“Commercial air operations and as a provider of multiple aviation services, including fire-fighting, cargo shipment, general aviation and agriculture, are among the ways the airport contributes to the prosperity of the region,” said Bill Carberry, Airport Manager. 

“Community input about the airport’s strengths and opportunities for growth is critical in helping to ensure proposed changes reflect the needs and interests of those that are intended to benefit. Our team will be on hand to answer questions and receive input.”

The airport, operated by the City and County of Twin Falls, through a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), is conducting a Master Plan Update that will help identify needs and growth potential, which will in-turn position the airport to receive funding for improvements and enhancements. 

The public can visit to stay up-to-date with information about the study and future opportunities for public involvement. Additionally, informational stations will be posted throughout the airport terminal during the month of July, and in other locations throughout the county.

Ricondo and J-U-B Engineers are managing this process. The public is encouraged to contact J-U-B at 208-739-3048 or with questions or comments.
