There was a good discussion at Salmon Arm’s Planning and Development Services meeting this morning on the importance of our airport as well as the proposed plan to phase in improvements.
See pages 20 – 48 here of the Shuswap Regional Airport, Airport Development Plan report including the six proposed phases.
The primary goal of the Plan was to identify and preserve the land for aviation and non-aviation related activities and to guide for future development in an efficient and cost effective manner, while recognizing the airport’s operational and business objectives. The following areas of development were of specific interest: 1. Runway 2. Taxiway 3. Apron 4. General Aviation Development 5. Commercial Development 6. Airport Maintenance 7. Winter Operations
