The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) has prepared an Addendum to the draft 2035 Long-Term
Comprehensive Plan (LTCP) for Crystal Airport. The Addendum describes a Refined Preferred Alternative that
was developed in response to public and stakeholder feedback about the original plan, which was issued for
public comment in September 2016. The updated plan proposes to (1) provide additional primary runway length
to better accommodate the types of aircraft already operating at the airport and (2) keep a portion of the existing
grass runway operational.
MAC will be hosting a public information meeting regarding the Addendum:
Thursday, March 30, 2017
5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Presentation beginning at 6:00 PM
Odyssey Academy
6201 Noble Avenue N
Brooklyn Center, MN 55429
The public is invited to attend to learn more about the proposed changes, as well as provide comments
regarding the plan. The meeting offers an opportunity for one-to-one interaction with MAC staff in an open
house setting with an overview presentation beginning at 6:00pm.
Beginning Wednesday, March 15, 2017, the public is invited to review the Draft LTCP Addendum and provide
written comments to the MAC.
Copies of the draft LTCP Addendum document will be available for distribution, and for viewing on the
MAC’s website, beginning Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Written comments will be accepted until Friday,
April 14, 2017 at 5:00pm CDT.
