MAY 21, 2021 UPDATE: The project team is continuing to work on the Watsonville Municipal Airport Master Plan Update (MPU). The Aviation Forecasts have been completed and were submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for approval in April 2021. The second Planning Review Committee (PRC) meeting was held in May 2021 to discuss the results of the Facility Requirements analysis. The Facility Requirements analysis identifies areas of the Airport that need to be improved to meet the standards set by the FAA and the demands of Airport users during the 20-year planning period. The project team will submit the completed Facility Requirements chapter to the Airport and PRC in the coming weeks for their preliminary review.
The project team is working with the Airport staff to prepare for an in-person public meeting that is planned to be held in summer 2021. The public meeting will provide a summary of the MPU process and will introduce some of the constraints the airport is facing regarding FAA design standards and funding as well as potential development concepts for the Airport.
Individuals interested in learning more about the process please contact Alexandra Aguado (email@example.com) or call (831) 768-3577.
