NEW RIVER VALLEY AIRPORT
Airport Master Plan
This scope includes land use planning involving the adjacent industrial commerce park. This analysis particularly examines relevant characteristics influencing development opportunities or constraints. A market-based demand assessment will be used to identify prevailing conditions, trends, and market support for compatible commercial land uses determined to be of greatest value to the Airport. Aviation-related industry benchmarking and evaluation of prevailing regional or national trends will be used to find opportunities for the Airport, with a focus on identifying the types of aeronautical related development to be pursued and those location needs. The master plan will recommend potential land uses and corresponding Airport or adjacent site locations best suited to accommodate identified market and aviation-related commercial development.
An important aspect of this master endeavor is stakeholder involvement, including business and industry leaders within the community. E&A has been coordinating and facilitating that endeavor in the forecasting process. Utilizing stakeholder interviews, historic and existing Airport activity, historical trends and growth rates of the aviation industry, the master plan will forecast needs and design aircraft to ensure appropriate growth and accommodations for future Airport facilities.
