We're completing an Environmental Assessment for potential redevelopment of the Aspen Airport. Have we missed anything?
The airport improvements Environmental Assessement is now more than halfway complete. We are excited to share with you the first conceptual visualizations of the two airport terminal concepts that the community told us it wanted us to consider. These concepts have been further developed by architects to help us determine how they would look from many different viewpoints.These concepts are in no way final designs! The design phase will not begin until after the EA is completed and approved by Pitkin County Commissioners. We anticipate the EA to be complete by Spring/Summer 2016.
Airport terminal design is not the only thing we are studying in the EA. We are also studying the widening and reconfiguration of the airport runway to meet FAA safety standards. We also appreciate your feedback on this aspect of the EA.
Thanks again for helping us create a 'right-sized' airport terminal and runway that will meet the needs of the community for years to come.
