NAMPA, Idaho — The City of Nampa is hosting t a meeting October 10, 2019 at the Warhawk Air Museum to discuss future plans for the Nampa Municipal Airport and surrounding roads. The meeting will include two identical presentations at 5 and 6 p.m. Community members are invited to attend at the time most convenient for them.

The presentation will include an overview of the draft Nampa Airport Master Plan, which has been in development for several months. It also will introduce the 39th Street Study, which identifies improvements to several intersections and roadways surrounding the airport. These improvements would increase safety and reduce congestion.

An estimated 89,600 flights begin or end at the Nampa Municipal Airport each year. The completed Nampa Airport Master Plan will give community leaders and funding agencies the information needed to plan for future development. The plan will address aviation safety, capacity and the compatibility of land uses around the airport.

Community members will be invited to give comments on both projects. The Nampa Airport Master Plan will be finalized later this year.
