What is an Airport Master Plan?
An Airport Master Plan is a process to plan for the short, intermediate, and long-term development goals of the airport. The Airport Master Plan for DeKalb Peachtree Airport will have a 20-year planning horizon based on aviation activity forecasts and will be developed through a combination of professional evaluation and public involvement. The goal of the Airport Master Plan is to provide the framework needed to guide future airport development that will cost-effectively satisfy aviation demand while considering potential environmental and socioeconomic issues.
The master plan is essentially a facility planning study that sets forth a conceptual framework for possible future airport development. Some of the specific objectives of the Airport Master Plan for DeKalb Peachtree Airport include the following:
Maintain and ensure the safety and security of the airport.
Plan for phased, incremental development that meets foreseeable aviation demand and maintains flexibility for change.
Evaluate sustainability options and environmental requirements.
Master Plan Process
At PDK, we value our neighbors and want to provide our community with an airport of the future - an airport that serves the area with valuable services, resources, taxes, and jobs. We have created our master plan to ensure our community-based legacy continues into the next decade and beyond.
Our Airport Master Plan is broken into 2 phases:
Visioning Process. We will incorporate stakeholders, assess current conditions, determine goals and objectives, and create future forecasts for the airport and the neighboring community.
Producing the Master Plan. This phase will use information discovered in Phase 1 to implement the plan and create a final master plan.
Stay Up-to-Date on News and Events
Throughout Phases 1 and 2, we welcome public involvement. We regularly post updates, host meetings and workshops, and request feedback throughout the project.
Whether you're an airport user, part of the business community, a planning partner, or a neighbor- we're glad you're interested in our progress!
