Master Plan Adopted in 2020

The Northern Colorado Regional Airport recently completed the Master Plan update. Master Plans evaluates existing and future aviation demand, and provides a thorough analysis of future facility needs. The Master Plan focuses on the physical development of Airport property and reserving space for forecasted aviation activity.

In addition, other factors relating to the Airport and its environs have been evaluated, including surrounding land uses, environmental impacts, and infrastructure. The Master Plan also provides guidance for compatible development within the Airport Influence Area, yielding a community-supported, data-driven, achievable strategy for land use near the Airport.

The final public open house was held virtually via Zoom on August 6, 2020. Visit our YouTube Channel for video of the meeting and see the FAQ for responses to questions received.

Presentations and solicitations for public engagement and feedback was requested at over 30 public meetings prior to approval by the Northern Colorado Regional Airport Commission, City Council of Fort Collins, City Council of Loveland, and the FAA.
