Vermont Updating Airport System Plan

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is currently in the process of updating the Vermont Airport System Plan (VASP). The VASP represents Vermont’s long-range vision and goals that will guide the integrated planning, operations, and development of Vermont’s public airports. The Plan will be developed within the framework of the State’s Three Priority Goals; Making Vermont More Affordable, Growing the Economy and Protecting the Vulnerable.

The VASP will include an evaluation of the adequacy and performance of Vermont’s public airports, forecasts of future performance, the setting of goals, policies, and recommendations, and an economic impact assessment. Ultimately, the VASP will provide guidance into how Vermont’s public airports can remain safe, competitive, and responsive to its users, stakeholders, and the publics’ needs.

VTrans wants to ensure Vermont’s airports meet the needs of airport users, stakeholders, and members of the public. To that end, VTrans will be scheduling a series of public meetings throughout the planning process, meeting with individual airport officials, and working with the Vermont Aviation Advisory Council (VAAC), who will serve as the project advisory committee for this Plan.
