(L to R: Port Staff Marilyn O'Connor & Steve Simpson. At the table: Commissioners Mike Ahrenius, Greg Hertel & Barbara Marrett at a recent Port Work Meeting on the Master Plan)
Port Commissioners held a work session recently to work on what may be the final details of a long term plan for the Friday Harbor airport and seaplane operations, and now The Port of Friday Harbor will hold an open house and briefing on the Draft Friday Harbor Airport and Seaplane Base Draft Master Plan Update at 5:30 p.m. Thursday February 16th.
The public will be able to ask questions and receive answers about the Plan from Port staff and planners. The event will be held Ernie's Cafe at the end of Airport Circle Drive -which is the first road to the left when you enter the airport (look for signs).
The Master Plan will be presented by planners who were hired by the Port to assist with developing the twenty year plan. The Port of Friday Harbor sponsors the airport and receives financing, guidance and assistance from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The airport is the seventh most active airport in Washington State and is classified as a Primary Airport; which means it is recognized as a significant part of the country's air transportation system.
