AIRPORT PLANNING INFORMATION
2010 AIRPORT MASTER PLAN
This Master Plan was completed in 2010. Among other recommendations, this master plan called for closing Runway 17/35 as a way of solving several non-conforming conditions at the airport. These included:
Non-compatible land use in the Runway Protection Zone under the approach to 17/35. Closing the runway would allow the businesses on airport property along the east side of Skyline Drive to remain in place.
Eliminate the hot spot associated with Taxiway C crossing 17/35 at midfield.
Provide 23 acres for landside development.

RUNNWAY 17/35 PLANNING STUDY
In 2015, after hearing strong protests from the General Aviation community at IDA, the Airport Director initiated a new planning study to focus on the non-compliance issues associated with Runway 17/35. Over the next two years the Technical Advisory Committee worked through a number of issues that would allow Runway 17/35 to remain open. Although a final draft of the study has not been made available by airport management, the last draft of the study and the proposed alternatives can be downloaded below.
