Naples Airport’s last master plan update was completed in 1997. Since then, there have been many changes at the airport and within the aviation industry. The primary goal of the master plan study is to create a 20-year development program to maintain a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly airport facility for the Naples community.
Naples Airport Authority initiated a comprehensive airport master plan in December 2017. The draft master plan is being submitted to the FAA and FDOT for review and comment. Final approval of the master plan is expected in 2020.
An Airport Master Plan is a long-range planning document that serves several important purposes for airport management, airport users, and the local community. Airports receiving development grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) are required to conduct periodic updates of their planning documents in order to remain eligible for future grants. The primary goal is to create a 20-year development program to maintain a safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally acceptable airport facility for the community. By achieving this goal, the document provides the guidance to satisfy the aviation demand in a financially feasible and responsible manner, while at the same time addressing the aviation, environmental, and socioeconomic issues of the community.
