Airport Master Plan Update
The Master Plan Update for the St. Lucie County International Airport (FPR) was completed in June 2011. This update was undertaken by St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners to identify a long range, orderly direction for airport development which will yield a safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally acceptable air transportation facility. The study was funded with a Florida Department of Transportation grant. The previous Master Plan Update was completed in August 2002. An Executive Summary of the plan is avaialbe for review.
The goal of the Master Plan Update is to provide alternative options for airport development that address current and future demand, identify the role of the airport in the local, regional and national aviation system, and provide potential utilization or re-use options for existing infrastructure and airport facilities. The master planning activities includes a five-year, ten-year, and twenty-year capital improvement program for future development of the airport, as well as an overview of land use compatibility issues in the airport environs.
In addition, this planning effort resulted in the development of a computerized Airport Layout Plan drawing set meeting FAA criterion, including an updated property map. The Master Plan Update ultimately provides the St. Lucie Board of County Commissioners with a comprehensive overview of the airport’s needs over the next twenty years, including issues relating to the timing and costs of proposed development based upon appropriate activity triggers.
