The Boise Airport expects to have the first public meeting in October for an update of its 30-year master plan from 2010.

The update will likely take 12 to 18 months to address short, medium, and long-term airport plans. There will be several opportunities for the community to attend progress briefings and provide input  during the update process.

The update will address the changes that have come to the aviation industry since 2010 and will refine ticket counter space needs and the airport’s focus on sustainability in environmental, economic and social matters, airport spokesman Sean Briggs said.

The big-ticket items from the 2010 master plan include a potential third passenger concourse, a third runway and parking expansion. These projects will be studied in the comprehensive update process, Briggs said.

The master plan and its updates detail the airport’s efforts to meet future aviation demand along with addressing potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts.

The airport undertakes master plan is updated every 7 to 10 years.
