Strategic Business Plan
Project Background and Scope
RMMA, in consultation with an aviation consultant, is developing a strategic business plan in order to guide investment and development decisions over the next 20 years. As the region grows, so does interest in development at RMMA. With nearly 200 acres of aeronautical land available, there are many potential opportunities for investment at the airport.
Currently, RMMA's investment and development decisions are guided by the 2011 Airport Master Plan, Rules and Regulations, and Minimum Standards, among other supporting documents. The RMMA Strategic Business Plan will aid airport administration and Jefferson County through a number of different measures, including:
- A review and refinement of the airport's mission, vision, and goals,
- A discussion of aviation industry trends and airport best practices,
- Possible airside/landside development scenarios with prioritized development parcels,
- Recommendations for airside/landside infrastructure improvements necessary to accommodate possible development scenarios, and
- A fiscal analysis of potential development scenarios and airport management practices to assist the airport in sustaining self-sufficient operations as an enterprise fund.
Airport stakeholder engagement is an important part of this process. There will be a project introduction on May 12th, opportunity to provide public comment on the process in mid-May, and a follow-up public meeting in summer upon the release of the draft Strategic Business Plan.
Recent Project Updates
The Airport Advisory Board (AAB) approved the mission, vision, goals and development framework at its March 10 business meeting. A copy of the presentation can be viewed here.
RMMA has engaged a consulting firm to build upon the work of the AAB, conduct public engagement, and ultimately develop the strategic business plan.
