Is the airport being expanded?
- There are no plans or land available to increase the size of the existing airport site.
- There are numerous important airport functions and facilities competing for the same limited space. All the existing facilities and functions are undersized for the current (let alone future) air service demand.
- Some facilities or functions may be prioritized to get additional space, but it will likely be at the expense of some other facility or function. A key goal of the ASE Vision Process will be to develop a community and airport stakeholder-based prioritization and balance for these facilities and functions so that use of the limited available space can be optimized.
- Given the limited space available, this is a primary opportunity for the community to set the buildout development for the airport.
