[ARCHIVED] Steamboat Springs Airport Master Plan Underway

KSBS Master Plan NewsFlash

The City of Steamboat Springs is currently preparing an Airport Master Plan for the Steamboat Springs Airport-Bob Adams Field (KSBS) to determine the facility’s current and future development requirements.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends that the Airport Master Plan be updated every 10 years. A Master Plan was last completed for KSBS in 2008 and the update is anticipated to be completed in approximately 15 months.

The primary objective of the master plan will be to reassess airport development needs and priorities, and prepare a 20-year development plan for the facility. While it is not intended to resolve maintenance, operations, property leasing, management, and policies matters; these issues as identified during this process will be documented for future consideration outside of the master plan process.

Public input is very important and will be accepted throughout the duration of the master plan. Public input is most valuable when submitted early, particularly during the investigations and solutions phases of the project. The first public open house is scheduled for Thursday, January 31, 2019, from 5:00 - 7:00 PM at the Steamboat Springs Fixed Based Operator, located at 3499 Airport Circle, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487.

Interested individuals can view tentative meeting schedules and public involvement events, and join the email distribution list at In addition, subscription to the email list may be completed by email.

Although the city is responsible for all development decisions, the influence of public input will be documented where possible. For information about the Airport Master Plan, the city’s website.
