Public Involvement

Stakeholder Involvement Plan (SIP)

The purpose of a Stakeholder Involvement Plan (SIP) is to provide a guide for implementing stakeholder involvement for the CEA Master Plan Update, Phase III. The SIP is a blueprint for defining methods and tools to educate and engage all stakeholders in the decision-making process for this project. The SIP is designed to ensure that stakeholders are provided several opportunities to be informed and engaged as the Master Plan Update progresses. The SIP also identifies roles and responsibilities of participants and establishes timing of public involvement activities.

Public Involvement Opportunities

There will be a public involvement program and the integration of communication tools and opportunities such as briefings, meetings and engagement programs to assure that the approach to public involvement is efficient, frequent and accessible. The project team will consistently communicate with agencies, municipalities, airport users and the public.

  • Join the mailing list

Stakeholder Involvement Group (SIG)

To assist in the development of the Master Plan Update and provide input at key decision points, the Master Plan Update team has established a Stakeholder Involvement Group (SIG) as a key way for the public’s input to be represented.
A Stakeholder Involvement Group (SIG) consists of a balanced representation of community leaders from categories such as:
  • Local Municipal Elected Officials and Staff
  • Agencies
  • Civic Groups
  • CEA Corporate Users
  • CEA General Aviation Users
  • CEA Fixed Based Operators
  • Chamber of Commerce & Visitor and Convention Bureau
  • Economic Business & Development
  • Fire & Police
  • State & Federal Elected Officials
SIG members will be asked to represent their respective agency or constituents, provide input and be the conduit of information exchange.
It is anticipated the SIG will be meeting three (3) times from November through summer of 2019.
