The public is invited to view and offer comment about preferred development concepts for the airport, the planned implementation timeline of those preferred concepts, and an overview of the financial plan for funding the short- mid- and long-term development projects for the airport, Monday, Oct. 4, between 4 and 6:30 pm at the airport terminal.

This open house represents the third and final public meeting of the airport Master Plan Update. Information will also be shared on the project website and at information stations in the terminal throughout the month of October.

“Community input has been critical in helping to ensure proposed changes reflect the needs and interests of those that are intended to benefit,” said Bill Carberry, Airport Manager. “Our team has organized multiple opportunities beginning last Fall for the public to safely participate in the planning process.”

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

“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.

The planning team is also working to prepare a draft Airport Layout Plan (ALP) for the Master Plan Update, which consists of a set of technical drawings depicting the future development plans for the airport. A preliminary draft of the ALP will be available for review at the public open house. The ALP set will eventually be submitted to the FAA for approval, which is required to receive federal funding for eligible airport development projects.

Ricondo and J-U-B Engineers are managing this process. The public is encouraged to contact Bryant Kuechle with J-U-B (208-376-7330, with questions and comments.
