Community Invited to Airport Open House to Learn About Airport Master Plan

The Bellingham International Airport has been adding new destinations, increasing the number of passengers served and building more parking and terminal space. It is one of the fastest growing airports in the Northwest region.

The airport is responsible for nearly 1,000 jobs in our community and it generates over $11 million annually in local business spending. It also provides travelers with non-stop flights to eight different destinations.

This year the Port of Bellingham is beginning the development of an Airport Master Plan. This comprehensive planning effort, which is required by the Federal Aviation Administration, will take about a year to complete and will include analysis of current and future airport activities. The Port will study the airport facilities, property and surrounding area. They also will consider different future growth projections and the possible improvements needed to accommodate them.

This Thursday (Oct. 27) from noon to 2 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. community members are invited to an Airport Master Plan Open House at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal, 355 Harris Avenue, in Fairhaven. People are welcome to come to either open house where they will find information about the airport and this planning effort.

Community comments will be welcome at these open houses and Port staff will be available to answer questions and take suggestions.

The planning effort is just beginning and more community meetings will occur during the process. Information about the Airport Master Plan can be found on the port’s website at www.portofbellingham.com/BLImasterplan . The website also has public comment opportunities.
