    REGULAR AGENDA

    1) Discussion and possible recommendation on the YCAA Yuma International Airport Master Plan.

    Mr. Chris Hacker, of Mead & Hunt presented the proposed Airport Master Plan to the Committee for their consideration and evaluation. Mr. Hacker began by explaining how the Airport is required by the FAA to establish and maintain an Airport Master Plan (AMP) that carefully considers the inventory of infrastructures that exists at the airport, the nature of operational activity and the investments necessary to meet the projected activity over the next twenty years. He further explained how the project began in August of 2019 and has included the participation of the community, our aviation partners at MCAS, regulatory agencies such as the FAA and ADOT, as well as a variety of interested parties such as our tenants and customers.

    During Mr. Hackers presentation, each element of the Airport Master Plan was described in some detail and included a robust discussion by those in attendance in all areas of the plan’s future development.

    The Public Relations committee discussed ways in which it can engage and use this master plan for the next 20 years. They recommended having a 6-month review on initiatives for the airport and to have at least five points they can use when they are with other professional organizations and groups to either promote, educate, or inform them about the airport. Another recommendation the committee made to the staff during this meeting was the list of activities, projects, or events of interest to promote the airport or inform the public. It was discussed how this master plan can be interfaced with the current marketing initiatives of the airport. Ms. Brown let the Committee know she will work with staff to help create this quick reference document and providing some tracking measure to show the progress of the master plan milestones as presented in the meeting.

    After a brief discussion that followed, it was the consensus of the Committee to recommend that the YCAA Board of Directors accept and adopt the proposed Airport Master Plan as presented.

    CALL TO THE PUBLIC
    There were no Public Comments.

    ADJOURNMENT
