Department of Aviation - Aurora State Airport Master Plan

Project Background

The Oregon Department of Aviation is beginning the process of updating the 2000 Aurora State Airport Master Plan (AMP). This process began in the fall of 2009 but was temporarily put on hold due to funding constraints. The project picked back up in July of 2010 and is now in progress.

The Airport Master Plan is ten years old and needs to be updated to reflect new facilities, current projections of airport activity, new environmental and other regulatory constraints, and to plan for an appropriate mix of land uses to support projected aviation and non-aviation needs and the long-term financial health of the airport.

The updated Master Plan will help the Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA) determine needed airside and landside improvements and select appropriate patterns of land use on the airport based on updated forecasts of demand for aviation services such as hangars, tie downs, repair, flight instruction, etc. Obsolete elements of the existing airport layout plan (ALP) will be corrected. An updated capital improvement plan (CIP) will allow ODA to make strategic investments in needed airfield projects.

The project will use the guidance of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular 150/5070-6B, Airport Master Plans, and other relevant FAA Advisory Circulars and Orders, Federal Aviation Regulations, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and other aviation industry publications.
