Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016, 3:00 PM Harvey Government Center, 1200 Truman Ave., Key West
The Monroe County Department of Airports is currently undergoing an Airport Master Plan Update for Key West International Airport. Three public workshops will be held to provide the public with the opportunity to learn about the process, contribute to the study and review its findings.
The first workshop will provide information on the Master Planning process and present current Aviation Activity forecasts. It will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 3 p.m. at the Harvey Government Center, 1200 Truman Ave., Key West.
The Airport Master Plan Update guides the short-, medium- and long-term development plans for the airport. It also will assess aviation facility and infrastructure needs. The update’s planning goals will seek to optimize the existing facilities and resources in an operationally, financially and environmentally sustainable manner.
The Master Plan includes a detailed study and analysis of 10 key elements, including environmental considerations, facility requirements and financial analysis. The plan is updated about every 10 years and is an inclusive process designed to encourage local citizen participation.
“Our team is excited to collaborate with interested members of the community on a master plan update that will meet the future demands of aviation in Key West,” said Don DeGraw, Director of Airports. “By working together, we will produce a plan that provides both a high quality experience for our customers and an airport facility that reflects the charming small town feel of old Key West.”
