In developing this platform, the Airport Economic Development Area (AEDA) has put forth the following objectives:

  • Ensure the long-term viability of the airport aviation operations.
  • Ensure the economic development opportunity through development of a business park, recreational uses, and alternative energy.

Nearly 2 million square feet of manufacturing and light industrial space is planned in the future. Over 200 acres is set aside for a potential recreational and alternative energy.

Airport Master Plan Update

The Marina Municipal Airport Master Plan, which provides guidelines for the airport’s overall maintenance, development and operations, is in the process of being updated.

Draft chapters of the Master Plan will be presented to and reviewed by a Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) that is comprised of various airport stakeholders, including representatives from the City of Marina, FAA, Caltrans, airport businesses, tenants, and area economic development interests. Two public information workshops are planned at strategic points in the process to encourage citizens to learn more about the future plans for the airport.
