The City of Boulder is launching public engagement on the future of Boulder Municipal Airport. The Airport Community Conversation project will ensure that community concerns and aspirations are reflected in recommendations for the airport’s future.
The public can participate through a Community Working Group (CWG) and upcoming open houses and online questionnaires. The city will collaborate with the CWG on the project process, including creating a range of possible scenarios for the airport’s future. CWG applicants can view commitments and apply online through Feb. 28 via the project webpage.
“We’re excited to kick off this dialogue about the role of the airport,” said Boulder Airport Manager, John Kinney. “A variety of ideas, aspirations and lived experiences will help us understand how the airport fits into the community’s vision for Boulder.”
The broader Boulder community can share their input during future engagement opportunities, including open houses and online questionnaires. The first open house will be held on March 15 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the airport. Details will be published on the project webpage this spring.
The final recommendation will be informed by city goals, including those identified in the city’s Transportation Master Plan and the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan.
