A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE MONTEREY PENINSULA AIRPORT DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS was held on November 26, 2018 at 1:00 PM to consider certification of the Final EIR and adoption of the proposed Airport Master Plan Project (Alternative 1). Please use the following link to access the agenda:   At this Special Meeting, the Monterey Peninsula Airport District Board approved the following resolutions regarding the Monterey Regional Airport Master Plan EIR and Airport Master Plan Project:

  1.  Resolution No. 1730 to approve and certify the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR), the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and related CEQA Findings and Statement of Overriding Considerations for the Monterey Regional Airport Master Plan.
  2. Resolution No. 1731 to approve Alternative 1 as the Monterey Regional Airport Master Plan.  The Airport Master Plan will provide a development framework to implement improvements that will enable the Airport to accommodate future demand for air travel in the region, enhance airport safety, incorporate airport sustainability goals, and increase airport self-sustainability.

The EIR process is a public process designed to not only provide information and analysis to federal, state, and local agencies, stakeholders, and other interested parties about the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed Airport Master Plan, but to also provide all interested parties with the opportunity to provide input and comment on the proposed project and related environmental analysis in a manner that helps ensure that the Airport District, in its role as the Lead Agency for the proposed project, is able to consider all input prior to its consideration of the Draft EIR and possible approval of the proposed Airport Master Plan.
