A major creek runs through the Air Operations Area (AOA), and maintenance of this creeks causing security issues for SBA. The creek is dredged annually by the County of SantaBarbara, and maintaining security during the dredging process is a burden to Airport Patrol stall. SBA wishes to relocate existing AOA fencing, such that the creek dredging operation
would be outside of the AOA and lesser security requirements would apply.
The estimated construction cost of all proposed improvements is in the range of $2.5 million. The project locations are shown on the attached Exhibits A and B.
