Master Plan Public Information Workshops

Two Public Information Workshops are to be held while the Master Plan Update is being developed. These workshops will be your opportunity to be part of the GFIA Master Plan Update process. The workshops will explain the purpose, process, activity forecasts, and potential expansion requirements to meet the needs of GFIA and West Michigan for the next 20 years and beyond.

Public Information Workshops

Workshops will be held at strategic points in the Master Plan Update process once preliminary work has developed sufficient information to indicate a well-conceived basis for future planning.

Please join us at these workshops. We highly value your opinion and look forward to meeting you. Your participation will be important to helping create the framework for our Airport’s future. Any comments that you have can be sent to GFIA by mail, posted to the “Comments” link below, or emailed directly to
