Airport Master Plan Update 1997
The primary objective of the Master Plan program is to re-evaluate the recommendations in previous airport planning studies, to determine the long range requirements for airport development, to identify and assess development alternatives, and to produce an airport development/improvement plan that will yield a safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally acceptable public facility with capacity for the future air transport needs of the City of Renton and the Puget Sound region.
In the process, the airport planning study serves as a medium for assembling community opinion, spirit and concurrence. When approved by the various local, regional, state and federal agencies, the Airport Master Plan represents the long-term intentions of all agencies regarding the location and extent of airport improvements. This permits long range programming and budgeting, reduces lengthy review periods for each project, and provides for orderly and timely development.
