Port of HR Embarking On Airport Master Plan Update

The Port of Hood River is embarking on updating its master plan for the Ken Jernstedt Airfield.  The Federal Aviation Administration requires an update every seven years.  Port Executive Director Michael McElwee notes the most recent seven year master plan cycle included completion of a shift of the runway location, closure of Orchard Road, and development of a parallel taxiway on the north side of the airfield.  McElwee says this cycle may address where the fixed base operator should be located, and the current plan is to move it from the south side of the runway to the north side.  McElwee notes the FAA will want to see some other projects in the plan, including perimeter fencing around the airport.  The Port’s airport master plan committee meets this Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the WAAAM Museum facility adjacent to the airport.
