Palomar Airport Master Plan Workshop

Carlsbad CA– The County of San Diego has initiated a new 20-year Master Plan for McClellan-Palomar Airport. The existing 1997 Master Plan reaches its planning horizon in 2015. The new 20-year Master Plan will provide a comprehensive approach to strategic planning for McClellan-Palomar Airport’s facilities and services.

A Master Plan workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, May 7, 2014 6:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m., at the City of Carlsbad, Faraday Center 1635 Faraday Avenue.

This, the second workshop, will focus on development alternatives. The airport project team will share potential development concepts based on planning activity levels. The project team will present:

    • An overview of airport capacity and facility requirements
    • Facility concepts based on potential demand

The project team welcomes your input and comments at the workshop

The Master Plan is intended to develop a framework for the future of McClellan-Palomar Airport within the context of local, regional, and national aviation system environments. The new 20-year Master Plan (2015-2035) will identify and assess a range of development alternatives for meeting the Airport’s forecast, facility, safety, and operational requirements in the next planning period. The focus will be on developing a plan of action that is demand driven, can adjust to the changing dynamics of the surrounding environment, and is reasonable and justifiable. The Master Plan will consider many factors including market trends, land use opportunities and constraints, natural resources, community concerns, and financial feasibility.

Public involvement is a key component of the Master Plan process. County Airports will be soliciting input from airport users, tenants, travelers, resource agencies, public officials, and residents throughout the planning process and at key stages of the Master Plan’s development. Public workshops and meetings will be held to discuss the Plan’s findings and recommendations. Ongoing updates on the progress of the Master Plan will be held at regularly scheduled meetings of the Palomar Airport Advisory Committee (PAAC).
