Master Plan Public Information Meetings

Master Plan Public Information Meetings

The Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is a small-hub public-use airport, occupying an estimated 1,450 acres in Reno, Nevada.  The airport, which is surrounded by industrial, commercial and residential developments, has three runways accommodating a wide variety of commercial/passenger, cargo, general aviation and military aircraft operations.

Owned and operated by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority, the airport is financially self-sufficient, funded by the fees and rents collected from its aviation and non-aviation tenants.  The Airport Authority also owns 200+ acres of vacant, undeveloped land in proximity to the airport.

The Airport Authority has begun a 16-month master plan project for the airport which will provide a roadmap to address airport growth, industry changes, and Federal Aviation Administration standards for the next 20 years, while balancing the needs of the community.

The first public information meeting was held on Thursday, November 17 between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. During the four-hour open house, Airport Authority and project consultant staff discussed the master plan project with the members of the public in a casual environment. The primary focus of the initial public information meeting was to communicate the project vision, goals, process, and avenues for public input.
