  Airport Master Plan

The Central Colorado Regional Airport is updating its Airport Master Plan, which will study the facility needs to meet projected aeronautical demand for the next 20 years.

The Master Plan process is a collaborative effort involving the Town of Buena Vista, the Airport Advisory Board and staff, Chaffee County, CDOT Division of Aeronautics, the Federal Aviation Administration, other state and federal government organizations, and of course the users of the airport and community at large. This planning effort is necessary to ensure that the airport has a solid plan to grow to meet the vision and aeronautical needs of the region.
