The City of Longmont updated the Vance Brand Airport Master Plan in 2010. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) defines a Master Plan as, "a comprehensive study of the airport and typically describes short-, medium-, and long-term plans for airport development."
An Airport Master Plan assesses what the airport could become in terms of facilities (runways, taxiways, hangars, etc.), while being careful not to discount future possibilities. It provides governing boards with options in how the airport can be developed and which facility projects could be eligible for federal funding.
A typical Master Plan takes approximately a year to a year and a half to complete. This can be shorter or longer depending on the airport and its complexity.
The Master Plan was prepared using guidelines from the FAA. These guidelines ensure that all voices are heard and considered in the process. Local FAA and CDOT Division of Aeronautics personnel were involved in the process from the beginning to help ensure that proper planning processes were followed and objective consideration given.
