Renton Airport Capital Improvement Projects
The Renton Airport is a self-sustaining airport, relying on revenues generated from land and building leases, hangar and tiedown rentals, and fuel flowage fees to fund operations, maintenance and improvement projects. The airport Capital Improvement Program receives additional revenues in the form of grants from local, state and federal agencies to fund specific projects each year.
The 2017 Capital Improvement Program has a funded budget of $2.2 million, which is made up of a few maintenance projects, the control tower renovation project, and completion of the Master Plan project. The following is a list of the major programmed projects, by year, with a brief summary and project status update.
2017 Airport Projects - updated 02-17-2017
Master Plan Update updated 02/17/2017
An airport master plan is a comprehensive
study of an airport and usually describes the short-, medium-, and
long-term development plans to meet future aviation demand. A Master
Plan Update is completed every five years as a way to ensure that the
Master Plan is kept current in order to meet those needs. The Federal
Aviation Administration is providing 90% of the funding for this
project, which will take 3 years to complete.
The City's consultant, Mead Hunt, began work on the Master Plan in August 2014 and has provided an informational brochure explaining the process of developing a new Master Plan. To go to the dedicated project webpage, click here.
