Open house planned on airport's 20-year development plan

An public open house meeting is planned for Thursday evening to share information on the formation of the Airport Development Plan for San Diego International Airport.

The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority will host the meeting to provide several concepts as "thought-starters" as well as receive public input on what will be the next master-planning phase for the region's major airport, according to a release. The ADP is designed to identify improvements that will enable the airport to meet demand through 2035.

Concepts to be presented will be "just a starting point," the Airport Authority said, acting as "the first step in a long, comprehensive planning process." As its shaped, the plan will eventually focus on a preferred alternative as formulated by airport staff. The preferred alternative would then go before the Airport Authority Board for consideration before a full environmental analysis is conducted. It is expected that the entire process will conclude in spring 2016.

The Airport Authority said the development plan will consider the future of Terminal 1, potential redevelopment of the former Teledyne-Ryan property, input to San Diego Association of Governments as it plans for effective intermodal transportation facilities and the creation of new non-airline revenue opportunities.

The open house will start at 4 p.m. Thursday and last until 7 p.m., with a presentation repeated hourly starting at 4 p.m. It will be held in the Orville and Wilbur Wright Conference Rooms on the second floor of the airport's Commuter Terminal at 3225 North Harbor Drive.
