Roseburg City Council approves $400k airport master plan contract
July 27, 2017
The Roseburg City Council approved a $400,000 contract to update the city’s Airport Master Plan at its meeting Monday night.
Federal and state grants will cover most of the costs. About $4,000 will come out of the city’s urban renewal fund.
The master plan was last updated in 1995. It outlines future development and upkeep plans for the municipal airport.
The consulting contract is going to Mead & Hunt, a national engineering and architecture firm. It has worked with Roseburg on several airport projects in the past, so it will be able to incorporate some of its past research into the plan, thereby lowering the overall cost.
The project includes a dozen major tasks, including providing project management, managing public participation, and reviewing airport inventories. It will begin working on those tasks in early August.
