Regional aviation study proposed as action item for Amazing Place

Economic Development Board to meet May 2

How should the region get ready for growing demand at the region's airports?

An upcoming study will provide a clearer picture of aviation activities and needs and set the stage for future planning efforts.

On May 2, the Economic Development Board is scheduled to adopt the Regional Aviation Baseline Study as an implementation action item for Amazing Place.  

Amazing Place calls for development of a long-term strategy to ensure that the region’s airports keep pace with the needs of an expanding population and economy.

The Federal Aviation Administration has requested that PSRC lead the aviation baseline study, which will build on airport master planning underway at many of the region’s airports.

The study is expected to begin in June 2018 and be completed by the end of 2019.

Also on the Economic Development Board’s agenda:

  • Ratifying the board's Executive Committee for the 2018-2020 term
  • Presentation by Forterra on efforts to grow the Cross Laminated Timber industry in the region
