Westchester County to Hold Community Engagement Sessions in Advance of Airport Master Plan Update
The Westchester County Executive George Latimer has announced the introduction of a community engagement program to hear from the public on the future of Westchester County Airport. On the Horizon is the base to create the Airport’s Master Plan Supplement – essentially the framework for the future of the airport with respect to the physical condition of the Airport property, buildings and infrastructure, additional analysis of noise and environmental impacts and the local and regional economic impact of the airport. 

It is important that the county hears from all airport businesses, operators, users, community organizations, etc. with respect to how the airport can serve their needs.  We are urging WAA Members to attend at least one of these town halls to voice your usage, opinions, ideas or recommendations.
It is essential that the public be an integral part of this process moving forward and together, we will ensure the Airport evolves as a valuable transportation resource and a good neighbor to our residents.
