The Airport Development Plan (ADP) is the next master-planning phase for San Diego International Airport. In 2006, a county-wide ballot measure to move the airport was defeated. Therefore, the airport will continue in its current location for the foreseeable future. The ADP identifies improvements that will enable the airport to meet demand through 2035. An additional runway is not being considered. The ADP considers replacement of Terminal 1 and the creation of new non-airline revenue opportunities. The new Terminal 1 will be designed to accommodate current/modern standards for passenger terminals, flow and security.
The Airport Authority has prepared a Draft EIR for the Airport Development Plan. A copy of the document is available for review here on the San Diego International Airport website (see Draft EIR link below). The public comment/review period ends and comments are due by September 7, 2018. Comments may be emailed to email@example.com (see Notice of Availability link below).
Who is spearheading the ADP?
The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority is leading the ADP process. The Airport Authority was created in 2003 as an independent agency to manage the day-to-day operations of San Diego International Airport and address the region’s long-term air transportation needs.
The Airport Authority is engaging both technical and community stakeholders to obtain input throughout the ADP process, including airlines and regional agencies. In addition, the Airport Authority brought together elected officials and staff from the City of San Diego, Port of San Diego and SANDAG to form the Harbor Drive Mobility Committee. The purpose of the committee is to ensure that the cumulative impacts of all future developments affecting Harbor Drive are considered openly and in close coordination, so that traffic flow on this important artery moves as efficiently as possible.
The Airport Authority is committed to keeping the public informed throughout the Airport Development Plan four-year process. There will be multiple opportunities for public input during the planning process and the formal environmental review.
