Airport Committee Readies Strategic Plan
Goals for the next 20 years are being looked at in a strategic plan for Joslin Field, Magic Valley Regional Airport.
The plan is being finalized now by a 21-member committee that has been studying the needs and goals of the facility that is updated every few years. The Times News reports that some of the major projects to be addressed in the plan include the repositioning of the runway for north-south landings to help reduce landing problems with crosswinds. The plan also addresses problems in the security screen area where more room is needed. The plan would also increase the size of the BLM building to house more firefighters during the busy fire season. And the airport may also consider another access for motorists which right now is limited to only one. The plan is not written in stone and things may change over the next few years but for right now the 21 member committee thinks the plan is a good one.
