The City of Bismarck, in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration and the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission, will hold a Public Hearing–Open House on December 16, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The Public Hearing-Open House will be held at the Bismarck Airport Terminal in Conference Room A/B above baggage claim. Representatives from KLJ and the Airport will be available to answer questions and receive your comments. A formal presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by a question and answer period.
The intent of this public hearing is to inform the public on the progress of the project, receive input regarding the preferred alternative, and to summarize the findings of the environmental analysis. Aerial photographs and alternatives that have been considered will be on display.
The proposed project will provide additional general aviation apron frontage needed to accommodate expanded Fixed Based Operations. The proposed project will be accomplished by removing or relocating three existing buildings and paving approximately 15,200 square yards of new concrete apron. This includes Hangar #5 which is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
KLJ is a consulting firm specializing in airports across North Dakota. For further information, call Curt Cady, Environmental Planner at (701) 355-8719.
