Airport Identity & Visioning Plan

Background


The Airport and Identity Visioning Plan will be developed through a Community Engagement Program to be led by the consultant team. This effort will engage a variety of stakeholders through a serried of meetings and 2 workshops, the first of which will be a Visioning Workshop that will formulate a Mission and Vision for the Airport, and the second will focus on a planning process to realize that vision.

This work will begin with a detailed Community Engagement Plan, and preparation of a series of informational briefs which will be used throughout the project. Community conversations will start with a series of up to 8 1-on-1 or small group meetings with airport users, neighbors, and opinion leaders, conducted over a 2-day period, to better understand the issues and the perceptions.

With this perspective, and after circulating the informational briefs, the consultant team will then host a series of up to 3 group meetings over a 2-day period with key stakeholders groups being: Technical Advisory Committee, Citizen's Advisory Committee and Airport Users Advisory Committee to discuss Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) of the Airport and to begin the visioning discussion. The consultant will prepare meeting materials to disseminate accurate information about LEB and the overall aviation industry, and will facilitate dialogue among the various stakeholders.

Informational briefs may address such topics as:
  • LEB role in the National Airspace System (NAS)
  • LEB economic "Drivers and Impacts"
  • The LEB Service Area And Market of Users
  • Local, regional, and national airport industry trends and the LEM niche
  • Airport regulatory requirements (safety, security, environmental, and more) and how these are defined
  • LEB's financial profile and comparable airport benchmarking
  • Air service trends and airport activity patterns
  • Environmental sustainability
