Huron County Airport Authority board member Carl Essex says it's crucial to update the facility's master plan.
"For decades, the airport authority has submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration various versions of a number of master plans and corresponding updates, some with, some without co-sponsor approval," he added.
These master plans become outdated for various reasons (such as) acquisition of property, actual utilization of the facility by the aviation community, prevailing area wide economic conditions, local economic conditions, airport finances and changes in use of or demands upon the facility, according to Essex.
