Airport Master Plan

Airport Master Plan

The Airport Master Plan is an evaluation of current and forecasted airport activity, facility requirements, and a review of various alternatives for Santa Barbara Airport.  The objective of the Airport Master Plan is to provide guidance for future development which will satisfy aviation demand in an environmentally and fiscally responsible manner while adhering to appropriate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety design standards. Alternative development scenarios will be devised, each satisfying projected needs in a unique way.

Through coordinated review by the City of Santa Barbara, the FAA, airport users, and the public, a recommended development concept will evolve which serves as a guide to realistic and achievable airport development. The plan then acts as a guide to aid local, state, and federal decision-makers when considering airport improvements.
