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 provide airport administration with an additional tool to guide development decisions by:
- Reviewing and refining the airport's mission, vision, and goals,
- Discussing aviation industry trends and airport best practices,
- Identifying possible airside/landside development scenarios with prioritized development parcels,
- Recommending airside/landside infrastructure improvements necessary to accommodate possible development scenarios, and
- Analyzing potential development scenarios and airport management practices to assist the airport in sustaining self-sufficient operations as an enterprise fund.
Airport stakeholder engagement has been an important part of the formation of the Strategic Business Plan. Airport staff and consultants hosted meetings on May 12th and June 21st, conducted a three-week online survey May 12th, and also engaged with the RMMA Advisory Board and RMMA Community Noise Roundtable.
