Michael Turner and Jack Dysart: Help with airport

The Airport Steering Committee is conducting a comprehensive review of the economic and social value of the Steamboat Springs Airport.

It will provide guidance to the City Council as to whether the community is best served by the property remaining a city-owned general aviation facility or converted to an alternate use.

We will hold a public meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday in Olympian Hall.

Public participation in this process is essential:

– to ensure that the review is as comprehensive as possible

– to record the diversity of opinions regarding use of the airport property

– to research and confirm or dispel common beliefs about the airport

– to hear all suggestions for alternate use or management structure, and

– to collect data on the economic, recreational, educational, and social benefits of the airport.

The community will be best served with all of the questions out on the table. The committee promises that every question presented will be published, considered and preserved throughout the process, and will be addressed in the final report.

As the comprehensive review progresses, data gathered by consultants and interim conclusions of the committee will be published.

Toward the end of the process there will be opportunity for public debate of the issues, but it is important to have widespread participation now to ensure that all issues are researched.
