The City of Steamboat Springs is currently underway with an Airport Master Plan for the Steamboat Springs Airport-Bob Adams Field (KSBS) to determine the facility’s current and future development requirements. The Master Plan is focused on analyzing current demand and forecasting future requirements to develop a plan supporting the needs of the airport over the next twenty years and investigating new opportunities.

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.
