The much anticipated kick-off meetings for the Marana Regional Airport Master Plan and Strategic Business Plan took place on Monday, August 17, 2015 at the Town of Marana, Arizona headquarters. The kick-off meetings mark the beginning of the comprehensive study of the airport led by a team of consultants from Armstrong Consultants, Inc., The Genesis Consulting Group, LLC, and Woolpert Engineers.
The intent of the Airport Master and Strategic Business Plans is to ensure future airport development is designed to enhance air and ground operations and improve safety and airport services for the Town, as well as the public users of the airport. An Airport Master Plan describes and depicts the overall concept for the long-term development of an airport and the Business Plan provides a financial and objective based plan to reach the business goals of the airport and support its development.
The Master Plan and Business Plan studies include three advisory committees. The Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) will provide guidance and advice on development plans for the future of the airport; the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) consists of members representing various technical interests in and around the airport; the Strategic Business Plan Committee (SBPC) consists of Town of Marana government officials, regional interests, and the business community involved in the development of long-term financial planning for the airport. Their involvement throughout this Airport Master Plan and Strategic Business Plan process will help to keep interested parties informed and foster consensus for future development actions.
The Marana Regional Airport will post all meeting minutes and planning documents as the programs progress on their web-site (www.flymarana.com).
