“Cedar City Regional Airport Master Plan Public Open House,” was held on Wednesday, April 10. Short-mid-and long-term demands were discussed and reviewed.

 An airport master plan is the process of establishing an airport’s blueprint for long-term development. It is a comprehensive study of the airport to determine an effective plan for future airport development. It ensures that it will continue to meet the needs of its customers in the future and that development is consistent with local, state, and national goals. An airport master plan is an important step in helping the airport become more efficient as well as financially and socially responsible. The purpose of the airport master plan is to develop a long-term plan for the airport to meet the following goals: identify conditions, determine any improvements, ensure safety, financial plan, and keep the community informed.
The last airport master plan was completed for Cedar City Regional Airport in 2018. An airport master plan is typically updated every five to ten years. This helps the airport respond to updated design requirements, changes in the economy, and industry changes. It determines if improvements are needed to meet current safety standards or future aviation activity. Ensures the airport is able to continue to safely and efficiently meet the needs of its customers.
