Boise Airport officials are planning for future growth as part of a process to update their master plan. The last time it was updated was in 2008-2009.

The public and stakeholders are invited to weigh in on what they'd like to see at the airport.

Overall, it's a chance for airport officials to provide a timeline to help accommodate growth over the next 20-30 years.

Further down the road, they hope to be able to provide more parking options and rental car facilities.

"About 80 percent of all air service, commercial air service, comes through the Boise Airport in the state of Idaho," says Rebecca Hupp, Boise Airport director. "So, it's significant not just for Boise and the Treasure Valley but the for the entire state and region."

An open house will be held on the third floor of the terminal building on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 5:30-7 p.m. 

Through the Boise Airport website, you can leave comments on the master plan and sign up to receive newsletters.

The entire process is expected to take 18 months in all. Ninety-three percent of funding for the analysis and process leading up to the final plan is being provided by the Federal Aviation Administration.
