Public Information Meeting Regarding Marion Airport (C17) Layout Plan

A public meeting will be held Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. to gather information from interested persons concerning the airport layout plan proposed for the Marion Municipal Airport. The meeting will be held in the LuxAir Aviation hangar at the Marion Airport, 1690 Marion Airport Road, Marion, Iowa.

The meeting will be held in an "open house" format; no formal presentation will be made. Interested persons may come at any time between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Representatives of Anderson Bogert, along with representatives of the City of Marion will be present to answer questions and gather comments.

The Iowa Department of Transportation requires verification that proposed projects are shown on a current airport layout plan on file with the Office of Aviation, when applying for state funding for new construction of buildings or airfield expansion.

Part of the planning process includes gathering input and comments from the general community, airport users, neighboring property owners, and interested persons. This meeting will provide opportunity for gathering those comments.

Anderson Bogert was hired by the City of Marion to create the airport layout plan. Eighty-five percent of the cost of this plan and report will be paid by a grant from the Iowa Department of Transportation. The airport layout plan will be used to guide future improvements at the airport and aid in securing future grant funding for airport improvement projects. Once the City approves the airport layout plan, the next phase of planning will begin, which includes creating an airport zoning ordinance and updating the City's Land Use and Comprehensive Plan.

Interested persons are encouraged to attend and provide comments.
