Airport Commission Set to Hear Strategic Business Plan by quotes

Residents and businesses are invited to provide input for the Scottsdale
Airport Strategic Business Plan.

The Airport Advisory Commission will hold a hearing on the plan during its next meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 8. The meeting takes place at the Scottsdale Airport Terminal, 15000 N. Airport Drive.

The goal of the business plan is to ultimately determine the focus and
guidance for future planning and development at the airport. Four potential business scenarios for the airport have been developed to
determine the best approach to keep Scottsdale Airport efficient and
effective and providing long-term benefits to the city and surrounding
community.

The four scenarios are:
** Scenario 1 – Market focus – small to mid-size corporate jets; reflects current operations
** Scenario 2 – Market focus – small to mid-size corporate jets with
adjusted administrative weight restriction; current operations plus an
increase to the aircraft weight limit from 75,000 to 100,000 lbs
** Scenario 3 – Market focus – small to large-sized corporate jets; current operations plus larger corporate jets
** Scenario 4 – Market focus – commuter air service; current operations plus scheduled passenger/commuter service

You can learn more about the four scenarios, download and review documents, and take a brief survey at: www.scottsdaleaz.gov/airport/AirportSBP.asp

If you are unable to attend the Commission meeting you also can provide input by calling (480) 312-2549 or e-mailing, airportsbp@scottsdaleaz.gov

AIRPORT ROADWAY, PARKING PROJECT UNDER WAY. by azhttp

A five-month roadway and parking lot improvement project is under way at the Scottsdale Airport. The project is divided into three phases. Completion is scheduled for early January 2008 — in time for the busy winter season. All businesses in and around the airport will remain open during construction. When completed, the project will result in a new three-lane, one-way roadway system in front of the terminal building — one drop-off lane and two through lanes. Parking improvements include a new terminal parking lot with 112 spaces and the reconstruction of the parking lot in front of the Aviation Business Center building with 164 spaces. Phase 1 includes the temporary closure of Airport Drive north of Butherus Drive. Traffic heading northbound will be detoured through the current airport terminal parking lot. Scottsdale Airport had almost 197,000 operations in 2006 and is one of the nation’s busiest single runway airports.
