A statewide public hearing on the 20-year plan will be held Feb. 4, and comments must be received by Feb. 12.
(Published Jan 22, 2013)
The public is invited to review and comment on Minnesota’s State Aviation System Plan (SASP) through Feb. 12. The SASP is a 20-year plan guiding the orderly development of the state’s system of 135 publicly funded airports.
This plan describes and assesses the current aviation system performance, and provides guidance for future aviation development in Minnesota. A performance-based planning approach is used to address identified goals and strategies for the system. An investment plan has also been prepared as part of the SASP to identify system needs and costs over the 20-year planning period.
The SASP is the result of extensive effort and collaboration over the past two years between the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), stakeholders, partners and citizens. This will be the final opportunity for the public to provide input on the plan.
The SASP is the first mode-specific plan MnDOT has presented to the public since adoption of Minnesota GO, the 50-year transportation vision, and a new Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan in September 2012.
A printed copy of the SASP is also available at the MnDOT Office of Aeronautics, 222 Plato Blvd East and the MnDOT Library, 395 John Ireland Blvd., both in St. Paul.
A public hearing will be held Feb. 4 from 4 to 5 p.m. in Room G15 at MnDOT’s main headquarters at 395 John Ireland Boulevard in St. Paul. The public also may participate via videoconference at the following MnDOT offices statewide:
Written comments will be accepted through Feb. 12 and should be addressed to:
