What is the Ryan Airfield Airport Master Plan?
The current Airport Master Plan was completed in 2010 and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) encourages airports to fully update their master plan every seven to ten years or when circumstances dictate. The new Airport Master Plan will identify a 20-year plan for facilities, infrastructure, and land development specific to the needs of the airport.
How do I get involved?
Two public information meetings will be conducted during the planning process to educate and engage the public and stakeholders for input and ideas on proposed development. These meetings will be conducted in an open-house format. Opportunities for the public to sign up for and receive email updates will be made available through the Subscribe for Updates page on this website, at public meetings, and through contact with the designated project contacts.
What is the time frame for this project?
Members of the Stakeholder Working Group (SWG) and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will begin meeting with the project team in February 2019 and it is anticipated that the Airport Layout Plan will be submitted to the FAA in March 2020. The planning process is anticipated to take 18 months and be completed with input from the stakeholder committees, as well as the public, prior to approval of the Tucson Airport Authority (TAA) and submission to the FAA.
What are the Master Plan stakeholder committees?
A variety of stakeholders will be involved throughout the planning process. Their involvement will be accomplished through committee meetings, public workshops, and other stakeholder specific meetings as needed through the planning process.
