Airport Master Plan

The Airport is updating its Airport Master Plan, which will involve studying 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's Division of Aeronautics, the Federal Aviation Administration, other state and federal government organizations, as well as the users of the airport and the community at large. This planning effort is necessary to ensure that the airport has a solid plan to meet the growing aeronautical needs of the region.
