Throughout the process of preparing an Airport Feasibility & Site Selection Study, the public involvement portion of the project will foster information-sharing and collaboration between interested Airport users and tenants, elected and appointed public officials, the general public, and other interested constituencies. Collectively, these various groups form the stakeholders who have a vested interest in the outcome of the study effort. The public involvement program will provide stakeholders an opportunity to be heard and express views concerning the conduct and outcomes of the study, in addition to providing a forum, both formal and informal, for an exchange of information throughout the study.
The public involvement program includes the creation of two (2) separate advisory committees: the Community Advisory Committee and Technical Advisory Committee. The Community Advisory Committee will be comprised of elected officials, business leaders and other representatives of local governmental units who can provide insight and guidance to the consultant's concerning political and policy directed issues relating to relocating the Airport. The Technical Advisory Committee will be comprised of representatives of local government planning staff, federal and state aviation officials, airport tenants and users, and other stakeholders who have an interest and expertise in the technical issues pertaining to airport development. A public information workshop will also be held during the project to seek input from the community at large.
